How to Keep Your Mattress Clean?
Before you begin, flip or rotate the bed, which should be done every six months to prolong the life of the mattress and avoid sagging. Toss your bedding in the washer and fluff duvets or feather beds in the dryer while you’re working on your mattress.
Add 10 to 20 drops of your preferred essential oil to the baking soda box. To spread the essential oil and break up any big clumps, close the box and shake it vigorously. Lavender, chamomile, sandalwood, and ylang ylang are all fantastic relaxing smells. Essential oils are also antimicrobial by nature.
Use the full package of baking soda to sprinkle over the bed. It’s time for a massage on the mattress! Rub the baking soda mixture into your mattress to give it a thorough cleaning. Allow at least an hour for the baking soda and essential oil to perform their magic.

While you’re waiting, wipe off the walls and bed frame surrounding your bed to create a pleasant sleeping environment. Vacuum the mattress after an hour, working gently to ensure all of the baking soda has been gone.
The combination helps loosen dirt and residue while wicking away moisture, as well as refreshing your bed. Additionally, cleaning your mattress removes any dust mites that may be present, making it simpler for everyone to sleep. Make the bed, and you’re all set for a good night’s sleep.
