Our covers unzip, so you can easily hang your mattress top in the sun. We suggest sunning your mattress-top a couple of times a year. Sunning will kill dust mites. Latex and visco-elastic are both dust mite resistant. If you suffer from severe allergies, with the top off, you can vacuum the inside top of your mattress components to remove allergens. That, combined with your sunned mattress top will provide you with cleanest and most comfortable mattress possible.
Your mattress cover may be spot washed with cold water and mild soap. It should be line dried.
Do not machine wash.
Do not put in dryer.
You can also purchase a quality mattress protector that will provide air flow and mattress protection. Our 100% Cotton, inside as well as out, fills the bill. We also offer the St. Dormeir Wool Mattress Pad which can be machine washed.
