Natural Mattress Cleaner
-1/2 c baking soda
-3-5 drops lavender essential oil
Pour baking soda and essential oil into a jar. Shake to combine.
Sprinkle mixture through a sieve in a light dusting over the entire mattress.
Let sit for at least 1 hour.
Thoroughly vacuum the mattress, ideally using a handheld, hose, or upholstery attachment.
The baking soda draws out dust, moisture, odours, and deep dirtiness and absorbs them. Then you vacuum it all away. The lavender is antibacterial and also leaves a wonderfully fresh scent. This is also perfect for cleaning memory foam.
Brad and I actually went a little crazy and used this mattress cleaner on our mattress, memory foam topper, my memory foam pillow, and his regular pillow. The recipe above made enough cleaner to cover our double size mattress and the 2 pillows. Our bedroom smelled so clean and fresh afterwards. We fell asleep quickly and slept like babies that night.
