Midnight Mattress Mayhem
So, I am selling a mattress and the buyer is coming tomorrow morning. I have pitched it as 'in great condition', which it is. Was. About 10pm I noticed a little mark near one of the buttons, so off I set to remove the mark. Oh yes. The soap left a watermark. Now 1/3 of the mattress is covered in water marks. The more I try to get them out, the further the area that is marked. The problem, of course, is contrast. The mattress is cream and it was (almost) perfectly even before. The mattress is only six months old, so it's not manky, just not even. I am ironing the damn thing to get it dry. Who spends their Friday nights ironing a mattress?
I as go towards the early hours, in ever increasing circles, is there anyone out there with the secret of cleaning mattresses? No doubt I will still be going when you read this message. I am imagining that parents of small children must go through this all the time. But then, hopefully, they have more sense.
