Did you know that the average person sweats about half a pint of perspiration every night? Yes, and this is all while you are sleeping. Guess where all that sweat goes? You guessed it right, your mattress. Seeing as to how dirty the mattress would be, we’d think we’d clean our mattresses more often. Yet, we do not.
Therefore, the mattress that you use every day is the perfect environment for the accumulation of dirt and bacteria. And, perhaps you do clean them once in a while, but you just clean the linens, and this will not do the trick. This is due to the fact that all the dirt, dust, sweat and bodily fluids pass through the sheets and end up in the mattress. Therefore, it is of great importance to keep a clean mattress at all times.
Hence, we are here today to present you with a simple trick which will help you clean the mattress well and fast and believe it or not all you need is a pinch of baking soda, which will do wonders in cleaning your mattress.
How to Clean Your Mattress by Using Baking Soda
The first step for cleaning your mattress would be to vacuum it. This is a very important step due to the fact that it will remove dust, dead skin cells and other debris that lands on the mattress. You need to do every time you rotate the mattress or at least once a season. Remember to use a clean vacuum cleaner.
The second step would be to deodorize your mattress. Due to the different bacteria lying on and in the mattress, it can develop a certain type of odor which is not that good. Thus, it would be best to deodorize it, which you can do with adding essential oil and water in a spray bottle and spray it over the mattress.
Now to the main part, in order to combat this you just have to spill some baking soda and leave it for 30 minutes and just vacuum afterwards. Baking soda is a natural deodorizer and this will immensely help with your mattress. However, note that the baking soda will not remove stains with this method.
If you do all of this, you will get to enjoy a lovely scent on your mattress and it would be one of your choice. That is it!
