Thread: I need a new mattress... Current one has stains on it.

  1. #1

    Default I need a new mattress... Current one has stains on it.

    I'm somewhat apprehensive about purchasing a new mattress because my current one has stains on it where I've leaked, yes it's embarrassing and I want to keep it my little secret but because I'm in a shared house I can't leave it outside in plain view for the council (removel people) to take it away because the stains are pretty noticeable. What do you think I should do?

    I have a plan but what do you guys and girls think about it first... I'm thinking about dragging it out the house in the middle off the night and dumping it a few streets away out of mind out of sight, sleeping on the sofa to wait for my new mattress to arrive? Sound good or bad?

    Why would removal people care for the stains on you mattress? If you are concerned about anyone else, can you not just turn it on the side with no stains?

    And it's a good idea to buy a waterproof mattress cover so you don't stain your new mattress.

    This is easy! I have been in the exact same situation and here is what you do: go buy a thin mattress liner that fits over the mattress and put it on before you move the mattress out. That way whoever helps you get the mattress out won't see any stains and they won't ask questions. The covers aren't too expensive so you're not out too much considering you'll essentially be throwing away a brand new mattress cover along with the mattress. I suppose you could take the cover off once you get to where you're dumping the mattress though.

    Trust me, this works and it will be over before you know it. You're in good hands! Good luck

    Keeping it covered in the house and no one will know. Keep using it.

    Instead of throwing away a mattress because of a couple of stains why not get a plastic sheet and scrub the bed?

    What I do is spray a heavy coat of peroxide on the stained bits and point a fan at it to dry it out quicker. This will take several hours.
    Repeat until the stains are gone.
    When they're gone spray on some nice smelling Febreze, Lysol, or scrub in a mattress or carpet cleaning solution.

    Couldn't you just buy a new mattress, have it delivered, and have the delivery people take the old mattress back with them to dispose of?

    Lots of people pee a bed and for a variety of reasons. Lots of people get sick in the middle of the night and vomit all over their bed as well. I wouldn't worry about it. I would do what Geekboy suggested and that is to get an inexpensive mattress cover if you want to toss it.

    How about getting some paint and 'spilling' it on the mattress before you take it out?

    Unless you need a new mattress from it passing its best performance or you find it uncomfortable then those stains are badges of pride!

    Stains on a mattress could be from numerous things such as spills, as I've done multiple times. Drooling, animals, sweating. I think you're thinking too much.
