I live with 5 boys. They are dirty. Anything I can get away with throwing in the washer, I throw in the washer. Toys, stuffed animals, shoes, coats, etc.
Unfortunately, you can't just throw your mattress in the washing machine. As often as we wash our sheets, it doesn't stop the fact that our mattress is still, umm, less than clean. Never fear, my favorite cleaning tool is here to rescue your mattress.
This SteamMachine Plus is my favorite steam machine/mop I have ever had. The fact that the inside part comes out and becomes a hand held steamer rocks my world. I no longer iron. The steamer is faster (and way more fun) than ironing and does a better job. I wrote another post about the most common ways I use it. I have since added steaming my mattresses to the list as well.
I vacuumed my mattress really well first. Then I filled my SteamMachine with water and let it heat up. It takes just seconds! Make sure you have the carpet glide attachment (the black snap on part). Then just slowly go over your mattress in the same way you would vacuum a floor. Your mattress may be slightly damp when you are done, but it drys quickly.
When I steam my rugs I use the mopping pad as well. For the mattress I didn't use it. I just attached the black carpet glide. I think it is fine either way.
It really is that simple!
I did all four of my boys' mattresses about 2 weeks ago and I just got around to doing mine this week. Fall cleaning is going to have to be in small spurts this year. Writing a book is no joke! It has been hard to fit everything in every day. Luckily, steaming my mattress took all of 10 minutes.

I steam clean everything including my fireplace hearth and then follow that up with some floor wax. It takes the black soot off of the brick and the mortar and then the floor was brings out the colors in the brick. It looks fantastic.

I would clean my mattress first. I have a cat who has the habit of puking on my bed, and she has a knack for doing it when the sheets are off. If I could get those stains out I would be really happy.
I would clean the window tracks on all of our windows. They have problems with either mold growing in them or just getting really dirty and the way they are made makes it really hard to get almost any kind of brush down inside to clean them.
Hitting the final last two months of pregnancy has me in a frantic nesting phase (happens every time), and this little handy steamer looks like just the tool I need! I've often wished to buy a floor steamer as it's non-toxic and only requires water, to clean everything from mattresses to curtains. Bonus: less bending over!!
