Homemade Mattress Deodorizer

Standard

If you couldn’t tell already–I’m on a huge essential oils kick. This next one was a super easy leap for me. I’m a co-sleeping mom to a baby with severe acid reflux. This means I get spit up on my bed nightly (among other gross baby stuff). Plus, I was grossed out about dust mites, etc. I’d never cleaned/deodorized my mattress (yes, that’s gross). So, I found this Pinterestlink and knew I had to try it.

It’s insanely simple. I used about two cups of baking soda and 10 drops of essential oil.

Mixed this all together and use something to sprinkle the mixture all over your mattress (I used my powdered sugar shifter). Leave it on for an hour or longer and then use your vacuum attachment to vacuum it off.

Next time I’ll try lavender as it’s supposed to be calming but I must say lemongrass smells AMAZING. It just makes me happy.
