There are Many Reasons Why You Should Clean Your Mattress!

 You spend a lot of your time at home on your mattress, but after a relatively short time, this place of relaxation and slumber can become less than appealing, especially once you know what hides within it. The average mattress can be home to between 10,000 and 10,000,000 dust mites. These tiny bugs eat the dead skin that falls off us, which on its own could be good, only that they also defecate on your mattress, and their feces can cause asthma and allergic rhinitis.
How to - Clean - Mattress

If you don’t like sharing your bed with thousands of unwanted guests, here's how to quickly clean and freshen up your mattress. 

What you need

How to - Clean - Mattress


  • Baking soda
  • A sealable jar
  • Lavender essential oil
  • A sieve
  • A vacuum cleaner


  • Pour 1 cup of baking soda into the jar.
  • Add 4-5 drops of the lavender oil.
  • Seal the jar and shake well.
  • Strip your bed from all bedding and pillows.


1. Get the sieve and start pouring the jar’s contents onto it – make sure you’re over the mattress.

2. Get the mix into all the mattress' nooks and crannies and leave it there for at least one hour – during this time, the baking soda will draw out moisture, filth, dead skin, and unpleasant odors.

3. Now it’s time to vacuum it all. Make sure you get all of the baking soda off the mattress.

4. Repeat on the other side of the mattress.

Now that you’re done, your mattress is clean, deodorized, and most importantly – free of dust mites!
