This cleaning method eliminates stains and it neutralizes the musty smell with the use of three common ingredients, which we usually have at home. It’s hydrogen peroxide, baking soda and liquid soap. Check your cabinets, you surely have them!

How To Remove Mattress Stains And Musty Smell

The preparation method of this cleaning mixture is very simple. You’ll need the following:


– 250 ml of 3 percent hydrogen peroxide (sold in all pharmacies)
– 3 tablespoons of baking soda
– A drop of liquid soap (you can also use liquid detergent). Chose a scent you like.

Preparation And Usage:

For best results, prepare this cleaning mixture right before you start cleaning. This way you’ll achieve maximum cleaning effects. Mix the baking soda and hydrogen peroxide in a bowl. Stir until the baking soda dissolves. Then, add a drop or two of liquid soap, or liquid detergent. Stir until the ingredients combine. Pour the cleaning liquid in an empty spray bottle.

Before usage, shake the bottle and spray the dirty parts of the mattress. Leave the active foam to work for about a half an hour. Then take a fan and direct the hot flow of air to the stain, to dry it more quickly. As soon as dry, brush the area with a dry brush, or use a vacuum cleaner, to pick up the remnants of baking soda.

This cleaning liquid will cleanse and refresh the entire mattress, leaving it with a mild scent of the soap you used.
