How to Clean and Refresh Your Mattress

How to Clean and Refresh Your Mattress

Imagine all the bacteria, sweat, and overall odor that builds up on your mattress over the course of months—even years. Since most mattresses aren’t washable, it may seem impossible to give it the deep cleaning treatment it desperately needs. Fortunately, we found a quick fix for absorbing excess moisture and odors so you can enjoy sleeping on a fresher, cleaner mattress. Let’s get started.

Vacuum, lavender essential oil, baking soda, and sifter

What you need:

  • 1 box of baking soda
  • Sifter
  • Handheld vacuum or vacuum with tube attachment
  • Lavender essential oil

1. Remove all your sheets, and wash them in a hot/warm cycle to reduce allergens and kill bacteria.

2. Add 10 drops of lavender essential oil to your box of baking soda. Cover the opening of the box, and shake it up to distribute the essential oil.

We recommend lavender essential oil since it helps with relaxation and contains antibacterial properties.

2. Sift baking soda over the entire surface of your mattress.
