Sure.  The way I do it:  squirt bottle and lots of plastic wrap.
Don't wet the mattress too much.  Use a solution of bleach and water
(not much bleach).  Get it damp, wrap in plastic wrap.  You can get
twenty five big rolls of plastic wrap at Costco.  It's important to
wrap it thoroughly.

Let it sit for 5-10 days.  If you are in a damp climate, wrap it very
tightly.  It should be dry when you unwrap it.

So; what did you get, from where, and what was the cost? I'm looking
at getting a new mattress at the moment, myself.

I got a Simmons Beautyrest with a big thick plush pillowtop.  The one I got
was from their "World Class" line.  My last mattress was really firm, and
this one is quite the opposite.  I think the softer style works better for me.
I chose the Simmons brand because they have an "individually pocketed" coil
design, which basically means that the coils aren't tied together with metal
(except at the bottom).  The marketing people say this means it can conform
to the shape of your body better, and in this case, I think it does make a
little bit of a difference.  Of course, with a mattress, it's all about
personal preference, basically.

I paid plenty for it (well over $000 including tax and delivery and all that),
but consoled myself with the fact that I at least talked them down more than
10% below the "sale" price.  I bought it at Mattress Firm, which is a chain
of stores that's apparently bent on world domination based on how many stores
they've opened lately.

As you have seen in this thread, it can be troublesome to wash a
matress. Get one where you can take off the cover, to be washed
seperately.
