How To Clean Your Newton Mattress

The Newton Mattress is a unique and innovative sleep surface designed to promote breathability and safety for your little one. It's unlike the standard mattresses most of us are used to.

To ensure that your Newton Mattress remains clean, fresh, and free from allergens, regular cleaning and maintenance are crucial.

In this blog post, we'll provide you with a step-by-step guide on how to deep clean your Newton Mattress, allowing your baby to sleep in a safe and hygienic environment.

Deep Cleaning Your Newton Mattress

To clean your newton mattress you can either hand wash it with a mild soap detergent or machine wash on a low heat and low speed wash. To clean the Wovenaire core, follow our guide below.

Everything you need to know:

Understanding the Newton Mattress

  1. Composition: The Newton Mattress is constructed with a unique 'Wovenaire' core, made of food-grade polymer, and 90% air. This design enhances breathability, reducing the risk of overheating and suffocation.

  2. Waterproof and Washable: The Newton Mattress features a removable, breathable cover that is both waterproof and machine washable. This feature simplifies the cleaning process and ensures a clean sleep surface for your baby.

Cleaning and Maintenance Guidelines

Regular Spot Cleaning

  • Immediate Action: Attend to spills and accidents promptly by blotting the area with a clean, damp cloth. Avoid rubbing, as it can push the liquid deeper into the mattress.

  • Mild Soap Solution: For more stubborn stains, mix a small amount of mild liquid soap with warm water. Dip a cloth into the solution, wring out excess moisture, and gently dab the stained area. Rinse with a clean, damp cloth and allow the mattress to air dry completely.

Machine Washing the Cover

  • Remove the Cover: Unzip and remove the breathable cover from the Newton Mattress. Check the care label on the cover for specific washing instructions. Typically, machine washing with mild detergent on a gentle cycle is recommended.

  • Drying the Cover: Air dry the cover to maintain its integrity. Avoid using high heat or direct sunlight, as they can damage the fabric.

Deep Cleaning the Wovenaire Core

  1. Vacuuming: Use a vacuum cleaner with a soft brush attachment to gently vacuum the core. This will help remove any dust, dirt, or allergens that may have accumulated over time.

  2. Freshening with Baking Soda: Sprinkle a thin layer of baking soda over the Wovenaire core. Let it sit for a few hours to absorb odours, then vacuum thoroughly to remove the baking soda.

  3. Odour Elimination: In the event of strong odours, you can place the Wovenaire core in a well-ventilated area or outdoors for a short period, allowing it to air out and dissipate any smells.

  4. Avoiding Moisture: It's important to prevent the Wovenaire core from getting wet, as excessive moisture can compromise its integrity. If needed, spot clean the core using a damp cloth and mild soap solution, ensuring thorough drying afterward.

Safety Precautions and Additional Tips

  1. Protecting the Mattress: Consider using a mattress protector or a fitted sheet to provide an extra layer of protection against spills, stains, and general wear and tear. Ensure that the protector or sheet is breathable and compatible with the Newton Mattress.

  2. Regular Inspections: Routinely inspect the Newton Mattress for any signs of wear, damage, or mold growth. If you notice any issues, contact the manufacturer for guidance or assistance.

  3. Safe Sleep Practices: Remember to follow safe sleep practices recommended by organizations such as the American Academy of Paediatrics (AAP), including placing your baby on their back to sleep and creating a safe sleep environment free from loose bedding, pillows, and crib bumpers.


Maintaining a clean and hygienic sleep environment for your baby is essential, and cleaning the Newton Mattress is a simple process.

By following the guidelines outlined in this blog post, you can effectively clean and maintain your Newton Mattress, ensuring a safe, breathable, and comfortable sleep surface for your little one.

Regular spot cleaning, machine washing the cover, and gentle care of the Wovenaire core will help keep the mattress fresh, odour-free, and ready for your baby's peaceful slumber.
