    Default which nozzle is recommended for cleaning quilt and mattress?

    I have got a few nozzles with my new vacuum cleaner, but there is not a single one
    said to be used specifically for cleaning quilt and mattress, I've asked the retailer but
    they said there wasn't one for my model. Which nozzles is recommended then?

    Is there an upholstery brush? Thatís what I would use on the mattress. Itís usually about 15 cm wide with no bristles. Mine has a strip of raised pile material to pick up lint.

    I would never vacuum a quilt. I would use a cover and wash that.

    We take our quilt outside and hang it in the sun; or we did until I had to remove the rotary line. Laundromat and a warm tumble dry for 10 minutes or so every 6 months would be my advice.
    Also we use a good quality mattress protector and regularly hot wash those rather than try and vacuum the mattress as it has a soft pillow top

    Can you wash and tumble dry the mattress?

    Of course you can Marc, finding a washing machine and / or dryer with a door 2200mm wide is the hard part

    It has a cover already, it is zipped. I mean to vacuum the quilt that is covered
