I've scrimped and saved to buy my two DS's new mattresses.....really decent ones, as they're getting bigger and need good support. So, in the last month, DS2 has spilt a whole carton of apple juice he'd snuck into the bedroom and then last night he had a nosebleed in the middle of the night (not that this was his fault, obviously! grin)
So, now his lovely mattress has a lovely yellow stain AND a huge bloodstain! Please help me get rid of them.....what do I need to do?
TIA smile

cold water with salt for the blood. Carpet cleaner for the yellow stain maybe. And get mattress protectors!

You can have toppers or zip-in ones.

Yes to the protectors.....the irony is I had them on their old mattresses, but because they were never needed, no accidents, I decided not to bother on the new ones......hollow laugh....!

Thanks for the cleaning suggestions though smile

I used hydrogen peroxide to get rid of blood stains. It worked well, and only cost a couple of pounds from the pharmacy (Asda, I think). There are lots of instructions to follow online.

I did have to tell them what I needed it for before they sold it to me.

Thanks for that Browneyes.....I'll try it if the salt water doesn't work! grin
