How to Deodorize A Mattress with Baking Soda
Deodorizing the mattress is an option. Even though we might not smell any odor from the mattress it can hold smells from sweat and other funky aromas. If you have little ones making accidents those smells can be trapped in the mattress as well. To remove odors from mattresses use baking soda. Spread the baking soda over the entire mattress; rub it in so it penetrates deep into the mattress. Allow the baking soda to sit for 10 minutes and vacuum up as much as possible. If any moisture is in your mattress the soda will pull it out when vacuuming, helping you to remove odors. (Some like to add essential oils like lavender, peppermints and winter green however you can use your preferred scent).
Mattress Urine, Blood, Vomit & Sweat Stain Removal
Mattresses will encounter stains. The most common are urine, blood, vomit, sweat and other bodily fluids. It’s much easier to clean stains as they happen but sometimes we don’t get to them. So removing old stains may take some effort.
Mattress Urine Stain Removal. Create a cleaning solution using 8 oz. hydrogen peroxide. Add 3 tablespoons of baking soda then a drop or two of liquid dish soap. You can dab or use a spray bottle to put the solution on the stain. Don’t over soak it or you can pull the urine deeper into your mattress. Allow the area to dry then vacuum again.
