Naturepedic mattresses are an investment in the health and sleep of you and your family. Below, we’ve compiled instructions for how to clean a mattress, pillow, crib mattress, and mattress pad. Read through the guidelines and make your Naturepedic certified organic mattress last even longer with proper mattress care.
Crib Mattress Care:
To clean your waterproof crib mattress, simply wipe the surface with a damp cloth. You can use any mild cleanser on the soiled surface. For models with binding (also known as tape edges), use caution to prevent moisture from getting into the natural mattress binding along the seams.
Crib mattresses that have quilted surfaces are not waterproof and are spot clean only. We recommend using a Naturepedic waterproof protector pad to prevent fluids from seeping into the mattress.
Organic Mattress Care:
2-in-1 Ultra (for kids)
The 2-in-1 Ultra organic kids’ mattress offers a waterproof side and a non-waterproof quilted side. Simply wipe down the waterproof surface with a damp cloth. You can use any mild cleanser, if you wish. Be cautious to avoid liquids along the binding or tape edges and sides, as moisture can seep into the mattress. The quilted side of your 2-in-1 Ultra is spot clean only. We recommend using a Naturepedic waterproof protector pad on this side.
Organic Mattresses and Toppers for Adults
Most of Naturepedic’s organic mattresses and the Luxury Mattress Toppers are spot clean only. We recommend using a Naturepedic protector pad to protect against spills and soiling, as well as to prevent fluids from seeping into the mattress.
Naturepedic’s organic sheets and protector pads will be a bit larger than normal when you first remove them from their packaging in order to allow for shrinkage of the organic fibers. Machine-wash these products and dry on temperatures up to medium/hot. It may take 2-3 wash/dry cycles before the sheets fully shrink down to size.
Wipe down the waterproof surface of your organic bassinet/cradle mattress or changing pad with a damp cloth. You can use any mild cleanser on the soiled surface. Be sure to keep liquids away from tape edges to prevent moisture from getting into the mattress along the seams.
Naturepedic Organic Pillow Cleaning:
The organic cotton/organic kapok blend pillow is spot clean only.
Both the outer casing and the quilted layer of the TRIO organic pillow system are fully washable. Be sure to fully dry the quilted layer before re-assembling the pillow. The inner casing of latex is spot clean only; however, this inner layer is protected by the other two washable layers from exposure to most liquids and soiling.
Our non-GMO PLA pillow is fully machine-washable and dryable. Machine wash cold, remove promptly and dry on low heat. We suggest removing the pillow from the dryer periodically through the drying cycle to fluff it before finishing the cycle. Be sure to dry the pillow thoroughly. Naturepedic’s non-GMO PLA pillow is ideal if you prefer to wash your pillow, which is more kid friendly than non-washable pillows.
