Why Is She Sprinkling Baking Soda On Her Mattress? The Results Will Surprise You

You can wash your sheets and blankets all you want, you can take daily showers, you can pound out your pillows, but all these efforts still cannot help your mattress. The only way to clean your mattress, is to clean your mattress.

It's hard to clean a mattress - it's not like you can just pick it up and throw it in the washing machine. Because of this, a lot of people don't even realize that it needs cleaning. And it does need cleaning - badly. Spills, drooling, sweating, dead skin and dust mites can all result in dirt that you can't see, but that you're lying on every night.

At least once every three months, give your mattress the best cleaning you can. You might not be able to toss it into a machine, but you can make it considerably better.

Start by stripping the bed down and giving it a really good vacuuming with a vacuum that has an upholstery attachment. This alone will remove a lot of dust and dead skin.

Next, sprinkle the mattress with an even coating of baking soda and let it sit for a few hours. Baking soda will help to absorb odors. Then vacuum it again.

Give the mattress a flip - flipping and turning your mattress regularly will help it from developing those dips and holes that make it uncomfortable. This step can save you from a lot of back aches.

If you spill something on your mattress, be it a beverage or bodily fluid, mix baking soda into a thick paste with a few drops of cold water and rub it into the wet spot. When the baking soda is dry, wipe it with a damp cloth and let it dry again.

The best way to take care of your mattress is to use a mattress cover that you can remove and throw into the wash. By keeping your mattress clean, you’ll be far more comfortable on it.
