While I clean my bed and pillow sheets I never attempted to clean my mattress until I found this diy method from Hello Natural. This natural detox is a simple combination of baking soda and essential to eliminate moisture and kill dust mites in your mattress. Yes, don't let the dust mites form! Eucalyptus, peppermint, lavender or wintergreen essential oils are said to be safe and effective to remove dust mites.
Making the formula:
Combine 1/2 cup baking soda with a dozen drops of essential oils. Store it in a bottle.
When ready to use, sprinkle the baking soda mixture onto the mattress and let it sit for at least an hour, but the longer the better! Then vacuum up the baking powder and replace mattress cover. For the ultimate mattress detox, replace it with an organic cotton or natural latex version.
