According to the Sleep Foundation, you should strive to thoroughly clean your mattress every six months and use a mattress protector.

Home cleaning experts claim that one of the fastest and cheapest ways to clean your mattress is to strip it and sprinkle it with baking soda for a few hours before vacuuming it clean.

Baking soda will remove odor by pulling out dirt, moisture and dust mites, leaving your mattress fresh and shiny clean.

How to deep clean your bed with baking soda

1. Strip the bed and vacuum the mattress.

2. Mix baking powder with essential oil and sprinkle over the entire mattress – leave for several hours.

3. Wash linen, sheets and pillowcases.

4. Vacuum the baking powder mixture and make the bed.

5. Finish with linen spray.
