    Default Used mattress hygiene...your thoughts?

    So I've spread the bedroom reno bug to a couple of my other friends. They're in the process of beginning to renovate their rooms and upgrading to queen sized beds.

    Right now I'm sleeping on a old school single bed/ bed frame. My friends have double beds and nice frames that would go good with my room. I'm going to take one of their frames, but now here's the hygiene question.

    I'm not as ballin' as them and buying a new double mattress (decent one goes for around $550-$750) is just not feasible at the moment as I am going on a very expensive vacation soon. What are your thoughts on me taking their mattress along with the frame?

    I'll shampoo the sucker and I'll also buy a mattress pillow thing that will go under my sheets.

    In a sense would it not just be like sleeping on a hotel mattress?

    Should I or should I not?

    I don't see why not. Unless they're complete slobs and the matresses have piss marks all over them

    If not I would lysol the entire thing and get a new mattress pad. But yes it would be just like sleeping on a hotel mattress at least you know the some of the habits of your roommates.

    Go rent one of those steamer things(where you just use water) too.
    I would steam it once let it dry, Lysol and let it dry, then steam it again.

    Will that get rid of any bed bugs, if any?

    Not the best way to start a mattress hygiene thread. I think your subconscious is trying to tell you something.

    I'd rather go for something that can spray the steam in, and steam kills 99.99% of bedbugs.

    This kind of pussy bullshit is why no one keeps score in soccer anymore, and we all have fucking peanut allergies.

    As previously mentioned, unless you're associating with known bed-wetters, throw a sheet on that fucker and enjoy your free shit.

    Calgary doesn't have bed bugs... does it?

    I think the only thing we have to worry about is dust mites

    To be honest with you I didn't even think about bed bugs. It was just hygiene in general about using a used mattress.

    Of course there are. Go to your local 3* motel and some "immigrants" will move in your bed soon after

    I manage my apartment building...since last Sept. we've had the exterminator come around twice for bedbugs. They have been in Calgary for a year or two, they have migrated from the eastern part of Canada.
    I would not only check those free mattresses very carefully, but I would have them cleaned by professionals.

    Wanting to be clean is considered pussy shit nowadays? Why don't we all take a shit in outhouses and bathe once a week as well to avoid being pussies.

    In your case, that would barely constitute a step in the right direction.
