Before you start:
Have a look at your mattress and notice the normal variations in latex foam. It is not everyday that you assemble a mattress, and you may see things that don’t look quite right to you. Latex has many unique characteristics. While we have strict quality controls in place, not every piece of latex will look or feel exactly the same.
Things that you may notice are surface discoloration, the natural scent of latex, slight variations in appearance, minor variation in feel, minor tears in the latex (less than one inch) and other minor irregularities. Some layers may show a thin ridge, off centered at the head and foot. This is not glue, but an impression left by a seam in the mold.
How many people?
Two person job! Always lift the latex with two people to prevent ripping and tearing. Be gentle. Do not pull on the latex.
WARNING: Be careful handling the latex!
Do not pull or yank on the latex, it could rip or tear.
Do not put your fingers inside the holes to move it around.
Do not s-t-r-e-t-c-h the latex foam.
You can use a flicking motion to move the latex into place or shake it like a rug to spread it out.
If the latex tears slightly, don’t worry. It happens. Tears less than 2 inches won’t affect the performance of your Spindle mattress — but please be careful.

Warning: As the tag on the cover states, you can NOT wash or dry clean the cover. You can vacuum the cover with a hand held vacuum that does not have a rotating bottom. You may also spot clean it with a damp cloth. The sun is the best disinfectant so feel free to put your cover on the line outside.
