It's that time of year again! The birds are chirping, the flowers are blooming, and every inch of your home is screaming for a good deep clean. But while you're busy washing windows and scrubbing floors, don't forget one of the most important (and oft-forgotten) places in your home: your mattress! Your mattress collects dust, skin cells, sweat, and god-knows-what-else over the course of its lifetime. Not to mention, if you have pets, their hair and dander can end up in your bed too. Gross, right? That's why it's important to give your mattress a good cleaning at least once a year. Here's how:

How to Clean Your Mattress

The first step is to strip your bed of all its linens— sheets, pillowcases, comforter, duvet cover, etc. Toss them all in the wash and set them aside. Next, using a vacuum with a brush attachment (or a handheld vacuum if you don't have one), thoroughly vacuum your mattress on all sides. Pay special attention to any creases or folds where dust and dirt tend to collect. Once you're finished vacuuming, take a look at your mattress. Any stains that remain can be treated with a mixture of 1 part water and 1 part vinegar. Apply the mixture to the stain with a clean cloth and blot until the stain is gone. Let the area dry completely before moving on to the next step. 

Now it's time to deodorize! This step is especially important if you have pets who sleep in your bed or if you tend to sweat a lot at night. You can either use a store-bought fabric freshener or make your own by mixing 1 cup of baking soda with 10 drops of essential oil of your choice (lavender is always a good option). Sprinkle the mixture evenly over the entire surface of your mattress and let it sit for at least 30 minutes before vacuuming it up. And that's it! Your mattress is now clean, fresh, and ready for another year of use.
