How to repair a ripped Mattress?

by Meena

I need to repair a patch on my mattress. The fabric is worn out on a small patch of mattress.

Where do I find a Patch Repair Kit for Mattresses or is there any other way to repair the damage?

    have you tried iron on fabric?

    Can you sew? If so, find some durable material and cut to fit, then sew it on!

    The first step in repairing a torn mattress is to secure the tear shut. Use a curved upholstery needle and upholstery thread, and turn the torn edges down and into the mattress. Sew the edges of the tear together using small stitches. Keep knotting your thread for extra reinforcement. After that you can apply an iron-on patch. The patch will prevent future fraying. Hope you find this info helpful. Good luck.

    is this an old mattress? is this the only wear and tear on it or has any springs started to go too? might want to invest in a replacement, but if you have to repair it, I suggest the iron on type of patch.
