The Beatdown

Some pillow-top mattresses have a removable pillow layer for more manageable cleaning and maintenance. Look for a zipper along the mattress, pulling the pillow layer out of its pocket, if possible. Hang this pillow pad out over a clothesline and beat it with a clean broom, covering the entire area of the pad. If the pad is permanently affixed to the mattress, beat down the mattress with the broom while the mattress is on the bed after removing all bedding.

In the Rotation

Rotating a pillow-top mattress helps prevent lumps and sagging spots. Since a pillow-top cannot be flipped like a traditional mattress, rotation is the best option for keeping the mattress in tip-top shape, comfortable and free of lumps. Turn the mattress so the area at the foot of the bed becomes the area at the head of the bed every couple of months.

Rollin', Rollin', Rollin'

With all the bedding off the mattress, roll around on the bed from top to bottom, bottom to top, and side to side, acting as a human rolling pin to roll away those mattress lumps. If there are kids in the house, this is a project they’ll most likely love to do, with no complaints. Roll around for five to 10 minutes to smooth the pillow top. An actual rolling pin also comes in handy over specific lumpy areas. If necessary, set up the mattress vertically against a wall with a friend holding it up as you roll the lumps smooth, using gravity to help work the pad fibers back into place.

Wash and Fluff

A removable pillow-top pad often is machine washable. Wash it according to the care tag, then place it in the dryer with a few clean tennis balls, which help fluff up the pad and remove lumps. Hang it over a sturdy clothesline after drying, then feel it with your hands, smoothing areas that need it by rubbing them between your hands or by beating it with a clean broom.
