Experts advise not to delay the removal of yellow stains on bedding

Bedding, such as linens, pillows, or mattresses, is in constant contact with our bodies. No wonder yellow spots quickly appear on them. We sweat in our sleep, and sebum accumulates on the surface of the textile. Such spots often have an unpleasant odor, which makes sleeping on them unhygienic. In addition, bacteria can grow in such organic traces.

That is why experts advise not to ignore the stains and get rid of them as soon as possible. OBOZREVATEL has found out that you only need simple home remedies that will not be a burden on your budget.

White vinegar

The acidity of this substance helps to break down fats and proteins, which are the basis of such stains. White vinegar also has natural bleaching properties and is an effective fabric softener. To take advantage of its benefits, you just need to add three cups of the product when washing your bedding. This will keep your clothes fresh and stain-free.


Two small citrus fruits can help remove stains from bedding. Cut them open and squeeze the juice through a strainer onto the stained areas, give it some time to work, and then put them in the washing machine. The citric acid in lime juice will do a good job of removing stains. You can also use a mildly concentrated solution of citric acid.

Hydrogen peroxide

This product not only removes stains, but also whitens fabrics. Mix half a cup of pharmacy peroxide with water and apply this solution to the stains. If the stains are stubborn and do not disappear immediately, sprinkle baking soda on the area. Then rinse and wash as usual.

Dishwashing liquid

This product is best for cleaning mattresses, which are the most difficult to remove dirt from. Mix a few drops of colorless dishwashing liquid with a little water and a tablespoon of baking soda. Apply this solution to the stains with a microfiber cloth. After a while, rub the stain from the edges to the center with the same cloth and wipe off the residue with a damp cloth. Allow the mattress to dry thoroughly before using it again.
