The bed we sleep in is a sacred space. This is where we rest and fill our body with energy for the day. We all spend at least a few hours in our bed every day. Whether we use it only for a night’s rest, go to bed with our loved one, or for watching the latest movie, this comfortable piece of furniture is certainly one of those places where we love to spend our time. But, do you ever clean your mattress? Very few people do!

Do you know that the mattress of your bed is full of hidden dirt? It’s a breeding ground for germs, and it can accumulate millions of dead skin cells, dust and dust mites. And not to mention the sweat-absorbing fabric! Thus, you need to clean it more often. But, how? It’s massive and heavy!

How To Properly Clean Your Mattress

Most people have a habit to change the bedding only. If we wash it, we think that it’s enough and that our bed is clean and safe for sleeping. But, we should learn how to properly clean the mattress as well.

Sweat, bodily fluids, dust and other small debris pass through the sheet and end up in the mattress. Even though it takes a lot of time for the dirt to accumulate, we still need to clean it regularly. And, what’s amazing is that you only need 30 minutes to do this chore!

A woman named Melissa Maker reveals a great and very inexpensive cleaning trick for your mattress. All you need to do is sprinkle a little bit of baking soda all over it and leave it for 30 minutes. In the end, you just need to vacuum your bed! This simple, but very effective trick will disinfect your bed and kill the bacteria.

Extra tip: After you finish with the baking soda and vacuuming, dissolve a few drops of your favorite essential oil and spray your bed.
