My grandchildren managed to spill an entire liter of almond massage oil on my latex mattress. Is it in danger of breakdown and severe damage as a result?
thank you

Big almond oil spill on latex mattress 09 Aug 2022 13:48 #2

Hi goom, and welcome to The Mattress Underground :)
Glad to have you here!

My grandchildren managed to spill an entire liter of almond massage oil on my latex mattress. Is it in danger of breakdown and severe damage as a result?
thank you

Ouch! Well, almond oil typically comes in 2 types: sweet and bitter…if the massage oil contains sweet almond oil, it can definitely damage latex, as some of the minerals contained can affect cohesion in latex layers. I would advise if possible, to contact the manufacturer and inquire. Also, the usual liquid damage control for latex: blot area, using mild detergent or isopropyl alcohol mixed with cold water, or baking soda can be used to absorb as much oil as possible, then air dry outside if possible.

Its difficult to say how much the oil will affect the latex without knowing the ingredients of the oil, and the type of latex…really any retailer that deals with latex mattresses would be a good source of info – I would hate to misinform you in case there are chemical processes here that I am not able to comment on. Sorry this happened! I certainly hope you can save the mattress!
