How to Dry Foam Mattress Pads
Drying Foam Mattress Pads
Remove the mattress pad
Remove the foam mattress pad from the bed. Place it on a clean, clear portion of the floor. Spread a plastic tarp or garbage bags under the mattress pad if you’re afraid the spill may leak onto the floor.
Blot the foam
Blot the foam with a towel by pushing down gently to dab the moisture. Concentrate on the area that soaked up the most liquid. Repeat this step on the opposite side if the moisture soaked through. Use another dry towel if necessary.
Stand it up
Stand the foam mattress pad against the wall at a 45-degree angle. Place an object behind the pad for support if necessary. This will help your foam mattress pad hold its shape as it dries.
Dry with a fan
Set up a box fan facing the foam mattress pad. Place the fan two or three feet away from the pad. Place it at an angle but still completely facing the pad. If the wet spot is on the top side of the mattress, turn it over so the spot is near the floor.
Let it dry
Allow the fan to dry the foam pad for about six hours. Test the area. If it is still damp, add an additional four hours. If the other side is still damp, turn the mattress around and begin the drying process again.
