How to Clean and Deodorize Your Mattress

So in the process of checking out Facebook today, I saw a picture that a friend of mine had posted showing how to clean your mattress using baking soda and essential oils. So of course I had to test drive the process for myself.

Our bed is in desperate need of some deep cleaning if for no other reason than that we have a little baby and that baby has christened this bed on a few occasions. So this idea sounded GREAT to me!

So, here’s what you need:

  •  1 cup of baking soda
  •  A glass jar with lid (mason jar or any clean jar)
  •  Young Living Lavender Essential Oil (at least 4 drops, more if you like…I used 6)
  • Fine mesh sieve/strainer
  •  Vaccuum cleaner with hose attachment

Put the lavender essential oil and baking soda into the glass jar. Put the lid on and give it a good shake until it is all combined. Then put the baking soda mixture into the sieve and shake it over the mattress. Allow it to sit for at least an hour and then vaccuum up the baking soda. Bye bye odors, moisture, dust mites, and hello sweet, peaceful sleep!

Just a word of advice, I personally use Young Living Lavender essential oil for a few reasons.  Obviously, I trust their quality and purity, which is VERY important to me as I try to remove toxic chemicals from our home environment. (Read more HERE)  So before you buy, make sure you trust who you are buying from.
