Professional cleaner shares the grim reason you should ALWAYS vacuum your mattress… and it’ll make you shudder
15th November 2021

AH, our bedrooms – it's where we wind down, relax after a long day and, also, turns out, sleep on our dead skin cells.

Despite how tidy we'd like to claim ourselves to be, hoovering our bed mattresses is not something most of us do, at least on a regular basis.

That is, until now.

Kacie Stephens, from Australia, is probably the biggest cleaning freak – and her discovery will make you want to grab a vacuum cleaner as soon as possible.

“Warning: once you see this, you can't unsee it!''

The Aussie mum-of-four realised how tiring it can get to keep everything clean and hygienic when she started to rent out apartments in 2016.

“I soon discovered that it is even more difficult to find a person or business that can consistently clean to the standard expected by a guest staying in hotel accommodation,'' she wrote.

Shocked by the low industry standards –   “I saw that many cleaners are being underpaid and naturally as a result of that—they’re underperforming “- Kacie launched her cleaning company, the Big Clean Co.

One of the hacks she learned has now also been shared to her 363,5 thousand TikTok followers.

If you want to see how much dirt, most of which are dead skin cells, lay within the crevices of your bed, Kacie suggested grabbing a black cloth and wrapping it around the end of your vacuum.

“That is going to act like a filter for the dust and skin cells,'' she then explained.

“Yeah, skin cells,'' she added as demonstrating a pile of light grey dust,“Duet this if you test yours! I wanna see!''

However, some users pointed out to a different solution, one that doesn't involve hoovering.

“Simple solution, use a good quality mattress protector that you can wash,'' one cleaning-fanatic wrote.

But, according to Kacie, mattress protector isn't enough: “This has had one in it.''

Others were finding the hack a bit amusing, with one comparing the cells to an skin condition: “me with psoriasis eh thats my tshirt on a daily.''

To whose who'd like to try this hack for themselves, Kacie advised: “Vacuum each time you change your sheets, steam clean when you can (once per year us good, but I know not realistic for everyone.''
