If you thought that washing your sheets once a week was good enough--and nothing else--then you'd be very wrong! Because there's a plethora of filth, grime, sweat, dead skin, and lurking bugs embedded into your mattress (and pillows).
It's pretty disgusting.
I can't.
Lucky for us, there's essential oils and homemade remedies for this, which I found on Stephanie Gerber's blog, Hello Glow.

Make it:

1/2 Cup baking soda
2 drops eucalyptus essential oil
2 drops lavender essential oil
2 drops peppermint essential oil

How to:

Using a confectioner's sifter, sprinkle the entire mattress with this and let it rest for a few hours. If you can do this before you go to work and vacuum it up when you get back home--all the better!
Washing your pillows in the machine is always an option, but check your pillow care instructions. But this method works on pillows too. Just be sure to hit both sides of the pillow separately.
If you're new to essential oils, then I encourage you to read my recent card here.
