How to Deep Clean a Mattress

#nontoxiccleaning #mattresscleaning #essentialoils

Something we don't think about too often is cleaning our mattress. Now that I just moved into my own apartment, I'm becoming more conscious of how I take care of cleaning and what exactly needs to be cleaned!


Did you know that you spend about a third of your life on your mattress? Think about the amount of sweat, skin, hair, and dust accumulates over time - yikes. But that doesn't mean you need to keep cleaning your mattress frequently - you can do a deep clean just a couple times a year and it's super easy!


That's why it's so great to have natural tools on hand like essential oils. The amount of times I find an answer to my problems is endless.


Here's all you need to deep clean your mattress:

  • Mason jar or sprinkling container

  • 1 cup of Baking Soda

  • 5 drops of doTERRA Purify Cleansing blend (contains Lemon Peel, Siberian Fir Needle, Citronella Grass, Lime Peel, Tea Tree Leaf, Cilantro Herb)


Create a sprinkle jar of 1 cup baking soda + 5 drops of Purify and sprinkle on the bare mattress. Then open your windows and leave for 2 hrs before vacuuming it up.


Even better if you let it sit for the day. If you only have a few hours that works too.


Studies have shown that pure Tea Tree oil in Purify blend (only use @doterra because conventional oils won't work) immobilized 100% of dust mites after 30 min and killed them all after 2 hrs.




Make sure to do this a couple of times a year to freshen up any smells and remove excess skin and dust mites. This mix can also double as a rug freshener, just use it the same way!


I use essential oils in all my cleaning and personal care, as well as my emotional support. To get started with doTERRA oils with me, click here.
