An ongoing vacuuming is best. The problem with any liquid cleaning is that you do not want to penetrate the surface. Once wet, the inside will likely mildew / never dry.

I find that a "little green machine" i bought years ago, along with my celling fan does a nice job for the once in a while cleaning of mattress'. But hes right, little water, make sure you suck up ALL the water. I have a ruined feather topper that will attest to that.

Is there some special reason why you felt the need to crosspost this to four groups?

Uh, nooo. It is folks like you who muck up the Usenet. Crossposters suck only slightly less than spammers.

A mattress pad protects the mattress so you only need to wash the mattress pad. There are upholstery cleaners and you'd need to be extra careful about starting mold/mildew. If the mattress is over 8 years old replace it.

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 $1000 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.
