The bed mattress can easily be stained especially if you have small children, animals, or just you are used to eat in bed. Small accidents can happen, and these accidents can be very hard to remove sometimes. But use with confidence the following natural ingredients to remove any difficult stain from your mattress.

Ammonia is one of the solutions you can call with confidence to get rid of the stains on the mattress.

If the stains are old, apply the cloth soaked in the ammonia solution, and leave it for 5 minutes. Then rinse the cloth and rub the stained area very well.
Careful! If you use this technique, it is recommended to use protective gloves and open the window, not to inhale ammonia vapors.
