Baking soda is great for absorbing odors of all kinds. Baking soda is very inexpensive and a very effective way to treat most mattress odors, from urine odors to stale cigarette smells.


All you need to do is remove the sheets from the bed and sprinkle the baking soda (about 1 cup) directly on the mattress. Let the baking soda set for at least an hour, longer for stronger odors.


Vacuum up the baking soda with the hose on your vacuum cleaner, and enjoy a fresh smelling mattress!


If you like, you can add several drops of lavender oil to the baking soda before you sprinkle it on the mattress.


Cleaning the mattress in this way not only eliminates bad odors, but will help to keep dust mites under control.


Please note that using the baking soda will not remove stains, just the odors. For stains, treat the stained area with 1/3 cup vinegar and 2/3 cup water. Saturate the stain with the vinegar solution and then blot with a towel until it is dry.
