Use Baking Soda to Clean Your Mattress

March 21, 2011 | By | Comments (2)

Now that it's officially Spring, it's time to start thinking about spring cleaning. So next time you change your sheets and wash your mattress cover, take an extra step to help freshen your mattress as well. It's easy, we promise. All it takes is a little bit of baking soda.




While your mattress cover is in the washing machine, pour enough baking soda through a sieve or sifter to lightly dust your mattress with it. Leave this light dusting on when you remake your bed, and it will slowly draw out any dirt, moisture, and odor from your mattress.


The next time you change your sheets, simply vacuum up the baking soda from your mattress. And for an extra boost of freshness, tuck a few dryer sheets between your mattress and box springs or bed frame to keep odors at bay.
