Why you should clean your mattress this Spring & HOW to do it!

We are in DEEEEEP DEEP DEEP Spring cleaning mode around here my friends.

Yes, even though it's FREEZING outside and we've been getting on & off snow for the past week. I figured this is the perfect time to catch up on all that deep cleaning because in a few months I'll be knee deep in our deck project and working outside in the yard (yay! can't wait!) 

Today's post might seem boring if you hate to clean, so I forgive you if you don't stay long and exit right out of this post. I don't like to clean either, but for some reason, I do enjoy DEEP cleaning. There's something about finally pulling out the stove & cleaning behind it that is oddly satisfying. I swear I'm the same person, and I swear I'm not from another planet. Well, maybe? 

Anywho, I shared this quick and easy mattress cleaning "hack" over on my Instagram stories the other day and I know several of you have tried it already! Which makes me so excited to get this baby up on the blog today so you have it for reference.
 It's pretty short & simple but the entire process DOES take an hour or two to complete from start to finish. However it's not like, an hour of you scrubbing your mattress or anything. It's pretty much just an hour of "sitting" time. 

First off, I'm going to chat for just a few seconds about WHY you need to clean your mattress. You wash your sheets at least every other week right? (I bleach ours weekly!) so why would you want to put those freshly cleaned sheets on a dingy old mattress? Imagine this, dust mites, allergens sweat and dust all sleeping with you. Pretty gross right? But it's honestly not something we think about until we..think about it. HA!

But it's all good! Because I'm here to show you the easiest, and quickest way to clean your mattress, make your room smell AMAZING, and help you get a restful nights sleep knowing your sleeping on a perfectly fresh & clean mattress!

Here's what you need:
1 15 oz box of baking soda
a few drops of essential oils (approx 20) 
A vacuum (preferably one with a removable attachment.)

Now let's get started-

The first thing you'll want to do is put a few drops of Essential Oils in your baking soda box. I love to order my cleaning supplies from Grove Collaborative  and I get my essential oils here. I love to use Lavender oils for this specific cleaning tutorial.

I just added about 20 drops to the box and gave it a good shake to really mix up the oils. 

Strip your mattress.. (I said STRIP YOUR MATTRESS, NOT STRIP ON YOUR MATTRESS.) Sorry, just didn't want any confusion. ;) and if you want now is a good time to launder all of your bedding and wash your pillows. 

Once the bed is striped start pouring out your baking soda all over your mattress. I don't use the whole box but almost. After the entire mattress is covered I make sure it's rubbed into the mattress well by just rubbing it in with my hand. 

Let the baking soda mixture sit for at least 1 hour on your mattress, but I like to leave it for at least two. Just to give the baking soda time to work it's magic. 

After the time has passed, simply vacuum up the baking soda, and voila! 

Your bed should be all clean and de-sanitized! Also, your room should smell pretty amazing too.


Sometime's it really is the little things, & I know you guys can relate to that!

I shared the full video for this over on instagram on my story highlights if you want to see this in action!



Thanks for stopping by today! 
Have you tried this method yet? 
I'd love to hear your thoughts if you have about it! 
XOXO
