You may think cleaning your mattress takes a professional, but it doesn’t! Learn to easily clean it and keep it fresh all year. Rest assured, these four easy steps will result in a clean mattress, every time.
Jar with lid
1 cup baking soda (double for larger beds — king-sized and up)
Essential oil of your choice (we recommend lavender or eucalyptus)
- Fill your jar with 1 cup baking soda. Add 4 drops of essential oil. Cover the jar and shake well
- Pour the baking soda and essential oil mix into a fine sieve and sift over your mattress. Let the mix set for one hour
- After an hour has passed, vacuum the mixture
- Repeat every three months. To upkeep your freshly-scented mattress, spray with fabric refresher between cleanings
Tip: Launder your bedding frequently between mattress cleanings to help keep everything smelling and feeling fresh.
Tip: To increase its longevity, flip and rotate your mattress every 1-2 weeks when you wash your bedding.
Common Spot Cleaning Tips
Unknown Stains: Spray with a mixture of mild dish detergent and water and let sit for five minutes. Blot with a clean rag, being sure not to rub the stain in.
Blood Stains: Mix together 2 tablespoons of salt per cup of very cold water and place in a spray bottle. Spray the stain and allow to soak for five minutes before blotting.
Urine Stains: Mix together 1 cup of hydrogen peroxide and 4 tablespoons of baking soda in a spray bottle. Spray the stain thoroughly and allow to dry overnight. Vacuum the spot the next morning.
