Is anyone aware of how much weight a mattress gains every year? We shed skin cells, there are dust mites, I need to stop there since I am getting the heebie jeebies. Mattresses NEED to be cleaned. Luckily there are easy at home items we can use to clean them.
MATTRESS CLEANER RECIPE:
1 CUP BAKING SODA
4-6 DROPS ESSENTIAL OIL OF YOUR CHOICE (see below)
MIX INGREDIENTS AND SIFT/SHAKE OVER TOP OF BARE MATTRESS.
Essential Oils to add could be lemon, lavender, melaleuca (great properties but not known for its pleasant smell) wild orange, and purify.
Spread the mixture on your mattress, it is optimal to use a sifter so it will cover more area. Let the baking soda mixture sit for at LEAST an hour, or preferably how long it takes to wash and dry a set of sheets. Then vacuum it up.
The baking soda and chosen essential oil will help purify the mattress, and the vacuuming helps to get rid of even more germs by sucking them out of your mattress and into the garbage where they belong.
Have A Happy Day!
