The Disgusting Things Lurking In Your Mattress And How To Get Rid Of Them

Is there anything baking soda can't do? The seemingly magical powder can be used for so many things, from beauty products to toothpaste this stuff can do it all. But why are people using it on their mattresses?

You sleep on your bed every night, but how often are you really cleaning it? Think about it, all the sweat, hair and late night cookie crumbs that are working their way under the sheets and into your mattress. You want to keep it clean and prevent any gross bugs right? Well, baking soda can fix that too!

Baking soda is pretty impressive in what it can do. When applied to your mattress it can actually fight bacteria and clean up all the stains and dust mites that are lurking in your mattress.

All you have to do to harness the power of baking soda is get yourself a fresh box of baking soda and a vacuum cleaner. If you want to add a scent you can add in a couple drops of your favorite essential oil (lavender is always good for sleeping).

Add the drops of oil directly into the box of baking soda and shake it up so it is mixed and there are no clumps. Sprinkle the powder all over your mattress, rubbing it into the surface. Let it sit for minimum an hour so the baking soda has a chance to do its thing and the oils can fill your bed with a great smell. Then all that's left to do is vacuum off the powder. The dirt and stains will come off with the baking soda and your mattress will look good as new!
