A Chillipad is a great way to keep cool without jarring your sleeping habits or having to turn up the thermostat. But like any other electronic device, it needs regular cleaning and maintenance in order to keep working like new. Read on to find out how you can easily clean your Chillipad and maintain a healthy environment!
What is a Chilipad and Why Should it be Cleaned?
A ChiliPad is a cooling and heating mattress pad that helps regulate your sleeping temperature. The ChiliPad Cube 3.0 is the latest model and it can cool or heat each side of the bed independently to anywhere between 55 and 110 degrees Fahrenheit. The water circulates through denim pads inside the mattress cover, which evenly distributes the temperature change throughout the bed.
If you don’t clean your ChiliPad regularly, the water inside the unit can become stagnant and start to develop mold and mildew. Not only is this unsanitary, but it can also cause the pad to break down prematurely. In order to clean your ChiliPad properly, you’ll need to remove the mattress cover and wash it in your washing machine on a gentle cycle. Then, you’ll need to clean the surfaces of the unit itself with a vinegar solution.

Drying the Chilipad
Drying the Chilipad
When you’re finished cleaning your Chilipad, it’s important to dry it thoroughly. Moisture can lead to mold and mildew growth, which can damage the pad and potentially cause health problems.
The best way to dry your Chilipad is to air dry it. Simply remove the pad from the water and place it on a clean, dry towel. Allow it to air dry completely before using it again. You can also use a fan to speed up the drying process.
If you need to use your Chilipad right away and can’t wait for it to air dry, you can pat it dry with a clean towel. Be sure to wring out the towel as much as possible so that the pad is only damp, not wet. Once it’s just damp, place it on a clean, dry towel and allow it to air dry completely before using it again.

3. Use a mild soap and water solution to clean the plastic housing of the ChiliPad™ if needed. Avoid getting water inside the unit.
4. Wipe down the coils with a dry cloth to remove any dust or dirt buildup.
5. Inspect the hoses and connections for any damage or leaks and replace any damaged parts as necessary.
6. Reconnect the hoses to the unit and plug it back in to the power outlet. Place the unit back on the mattress and turn it on to resume use.
