Did you know that mattresses can be cleaned? I hope I’m not the only one who as slept on a “dirty” uncleaned mattress. No, seriously, Luke and I bought our mattress when we got married (7 years ago!) and we have never cleaned it … well until this weekend. I’m cringing a bit, because cleaning it was so easy and the results are great. We now have a bright and clean mattress.
It all started with this pin by One Good Thing by Jillee.
I read somewhere that Martha Stewart says to do this twice a year. It is supposed to clean (which it definitely does!) your mattress and kill dust mites. I will definitely be doing this to all of ours going forward.

WOW, that’s amazing. Have to remember that!
Going to try cleaning my futon. thanks.
Let me know how it works on the futon!
do u have to spray the baking soda the dray way or solve it b4 using with (how much) water?
I just sprinkled it on. Hope that helps!
What about cleaning urine on a mattress?
Baking Soda will help deodorize. Worked for me.
I going to sift the baking soda just like you do your dry ingredients like –flour baking powder–baking soda for some recipes I think it would be easy to vacuum at the end of the hour have a nice day
For sure! Good luck Catherine!
lol Ashley. We just HAVE TO vacuum the mattress pretty regularly out here! !
But I had read about the baking soda trick somewhere online and it does help deodorize. Another thing I do after I’m done cleaning the mattress I put a few drops of lavender oil on cotton balls and place them on the mattress before putting on the sheets. 🙂
Good to know!! Thanks Kimberly!
