It’s Easy To Have A “Green” Inn With Eco-Friendly Products

“Going Green” seems to be the rage these days, and for good reason. Green products minimize exposure to toxins, such as the harmful chemicals often found in fabrics, building materials and products for personal use. Eco-friendly bedding and bath products are safer for the environment by taking advantage of toxic-free and recycled materials. Green bedding and bath products are usually less irritable and free from toxins.

InnStyle Organic Pure Linen Sheets

InnStyle has embraced the green movement, adding organic and ecologically responsible products to their inventory. Soft, breathable, eco-friendly products, including sheets, coverlets, blankets, bedspreads, pillows, towels, bath rugs, robes and bath products are available at InnStyle. Green products include:

Mattress Care

All mattresses should have protection. It will give you optimal return on your mattress investment plus insure your mattress warranty. Your guests will appreciate the cleanliness & protection of a cover when using the bed. It is important to have zippered waterproof encasements for mattress and box spring for protection from dust mites, bedbugs & protection against spills, etc. These covers should be zippered (which will not need removing). You should then protect your mattress with a mattress pad for comfort. These can be washed and dried before dressing the bed for next Wholesale Mattress to Innkeepers - Hospitality Industryuse. It would be wise to have a few extra mattress pads for emergency situations.

Vacuuming is the only recommended cleaning method. If covered with a waterproof mattress cover, you should not have any stains directly on the mattress. If there is liquid on the mattress, we recommend using a towel to blot the liquid. Apply gentle pressure to absorb the liquid. Do not press the liquid into the mattress. If you must clean a stain, use mild soap with cold water and apply lightly! Don’t ever soak a mattress or foundation and don’t use dry cleaning fluid of any type on your mattress — these chemicals could damage some of the comfort and upholstery materials.

For general care, always flip and rotate the mattress. A two-sided mattress should be flipped and rotated regularly. Mattress can be flipped in Summer & again in Winter. You could then do the rotating of the mattress in Spring & Fall. Single sided mattresses should also be rotated-although you do not flip, obviously. Again, you can choose time of year and schedule all flips and rotations on a calendar.

You should also rotate your box spring once a year.

Always use a bed frame with a rigid center support that supports the head, foot, sides and center of the mattress and box spring. If using bed slats with a mattress and box spring, use at least three rigid, no-slag slats.

InnStyle can supply your Inn or Bed and Breakfast with mattresses at wholesale pricing.  Contact your InnStyle representative or call Toll Free: 1-800-877-INNS (4667) to receive Personal Service at Wholesale Pricing.
