How To Clean Your Mattress- Mattress Hack

It's almost Spring Cleaning season!  One area that most of us never think about cleaning is our mattress. If you think about it, the mattress harbors a lot of dirt, moisture and odor.  With this make at home cleaning solution, you too can have a fresh smelling mattress in no time!  While you are cleaning, make sure you put your bedding in the washer so everything is cleaned.

Here's what you will need:
1. Baking Soda
2. Mason Jar
3. Essential Lavender Oil (optional, but adds a nice touch and lavender also helps you fall asleep)
4. Kitchen Strainer
5. Vacuum cleaner with hose attachment


In the mason jar, add 1 cup of baking soda with 4 drops of lavender oil.  Shake this up.
With a vacuum cleaner, suck up all the dust/dirt/debris from your mattress. While doing this, lift up your mattress and clean the box spring portion as well.
Using the strainer, pour your mixture and sift the mix all over your bed.
Allow it to sit for 1 hour
Then vacuum it back up!  Easy!

The baking soda draws in the moisture and also deodorizes while the lavender adds a touch of fresh scent.  And now your bed is ready for a nice restful ZZZZ.
