How to use baking soda and lavender oil to remove smell/ kill bacteria from your mattress



Sophie Hinchliffe – better known as Instagram sensation Mrs Hinch – has wowed her followers again after sharing how she cleans her mattress.

Despite the number of hours per week we spend sleeping on it, and how often we wash our bedsheets, many of us forget that our mattress is prone to picking up a lot of bacteria.

But, of course Mrs Hinch has got our backs, posting a video to her 3.1 million Instagram followers on how she keeps her mattress squeaky clean.

Recording the process on her Instagram stories, she stripped her bed of all the sheets, before grabbing the miracle product (bicarbonate of soda) – which most of us already have in our kitchen cupboards.

After filling a sieve with bicarbonate of soda, which is available in all pastries selling shops, she sprinkled it over the entire mattress – and recommends leaving it to soak in for an hour.

It’s really handy for removing nasty smells if your child wets the bed.

Mrs Hinch then sets her Shark hand held vacuum cleaner to the cool setting to suck up all of the bicarbonate of soda – and voila, your mattress is as good as new.

She also revealed that she puts a few drops of lavender essential oil to her pillows before putting on the cases for long-lasting, calming freshness – perfect before going to sleep.
