Give Your Mattress A Refresh With Baking Soda

Your body constantly sheds old skin cells, releases oils and sweat while you sleep. This all lands up on your bedding and eventually works its way into your mattress. It should therefore be regularly cleaned as well, even more so if you have pets sleeping on your bed.

This is another task for baking soda. Baking soda provides a non toxic way for you to clean and refresh your mattress without having to use strong detergents or harsh chemicals.

What You’ll Need For Your Mattress Refresh

  • Baking Soda
  • Vacuum Cleaner

How To Do The Refresh

First start off by removing all of your bedding, put your bedding through the wash while you refresh you mattress so that you don’t dirty it again right away.

Sprinkle baking soda liberally over the whole surface, use a soft brush to lightly work some of the baking soda into the surface of the mattress.

Allow the baking soda to stand for at least an hour, longer if you have the time.

Attach a brush attachment to your vacuum cleaner and put the vacuum cleaner on the highest possible setting. Vacuum up the baking soda while brushing in a circular motion to loosen and pick up the baking soda.

Do this refresh every six months to keep your mattress fresh and clean.

If you’ve impressed by how well baking soda works as a refresher, here are many more ways baking soda can be used around the house.
