A very simple trick to make your mattress clean and fresh
If your mattress has seen better days and is looking a bit worse for wear, don't give up hope. Instead of rushing out to buy a new one, you can try this trick to get it looking like new again. The best thing is that it only takes one ingredient that you probably already have at home.
- 1 package of baking soda
- vacuum cleaner
- essential oil (optional)
The first step is to vacuum the mattress and get it as clean as possible. Then you can use a sifter to spread the whole package of baking soda to cover the entire surface of the mattress. If you want to add a nice scent, sprinkle on 10 to 15 drops of your favorite essential oil. Now let it sit for a few hours, or better yet, a whole day. To finish, simply vacuum up the baking soda and you're done!
Here's a video that shows you all the steps...
As the woman in the video explains, we perspire about 1 cup of sweat every night. With only a thin sheet between us and the mattress, that means a lot of moisture gets into it. That's one reason it's so important to have a mattress pad. But with or without the pad, this simple cleaning method helps to get rid of that moisture and other things such as dirt, dead skin cells, dust and unpleasant odors.
It's a really simple and effective trick that can make a huge difference to your sleeping experience. Try it out and enjoy a great night's sleep on your fresh, clean mattress.
