hi, i'm wondering if anyone has any experience or advice about how to care for my futon matress that has a little mildew? there was a little on the cover, which i removed and washed. i wondered about spritzing matress with clorox/water mix and leaving in the sun to dry and air out. any suggestions?

thanks, jbw

Hi jbw:

Your plan should work.

Surface washing with a very low level bleach and water mix and a day in the dry, hot sun will be great for you mattress. Don't soak it.

Is it all cotton or a blend?
