It’s interesting to think about...we make sure we wash our sheets frequently, our quilts occasionally, but how often do we think about cleaning our mattress??! It’s not something I had really thought about, until recently. Now, I have a mattress spray that I use each time I wash the sheets...and this mattress powder every month or so. It helps to keep the mattress clean, and to stave off any lingering microorganisms.
1/2 cup baking soda
5 drops Lavender
5 drops Peppermint
Combine ingredients and sprinkle on your mattress. Leave on your mattress for 30-60 minutes. Vacuum off using the hose attachment.
