In order to help combat bed bugs from spreading, and thus possibly spreading disease, state legislations have enacted laws that limit the transfer of used mattresses and box springs. In most states, charities and businesses that reuse old mattresses must follow strict guidelines on sanitizing them first. For many, the cost just isn't worth the donation.
On the topic of heat, this kind of bed is also rumored to be incompatible with bed warmers and electric blankets. There is a measure of truth here. Because the foam softens in reaction to heat- usually body heat- the use of electric heating devices will wear the bed out more quickly. Some manufacturers also recommend not using bed warmers and electric blankets due to the risk of fire. In the United States, all mattresses must meet federal fire safety standards, but meeting the standards does not outweigh the risks when consumers go against manufacturer warnings.
My old mattress was really starting to bother my back, so I decided to look into memory foam mattress toppers. I had sticker shock after pricing new mattresses, so I thought a foam topper would be a cheaper- and better alternative to my dilemma.
Now that we've gone over the whys of cleaning your mattress and bed, let's take a look at some tips for accomplishing that task.
