Or, the Pinterest and the Pea...
People who know me, know I'm very
particular when it comes to my bed.
I like it to look good, I like it to smell
good and I take time to make it that way.
I iron my sheets, I use a lavender linen
spray and I tuck a lavender sachet under
my pillow. I saw this pin on pinterest
about cleaning your mattress so I thought
I'd give it a try.
Take 1 cup of baking soda and
4 to 5 drops of lavender essential
oil (or any scent you like).
Place in a jar and shake to mix.
Place powder in a kitchen strainer and
dust all over the mattress. I found this
part to be tricky. It was best to place the
strainer on the mattress and put a small
portion in it and then gently tap the side
of the strainer. You want it to come out
like you are dusting confectioner's sugar
over a dessert. I found I still had to move
it around with my hand to get full
coverage on a queen size mattress.
Wait one hour and vacuum with the
The pin says this will draw up any moisture
or dirt from your mattress including dust mites.
I'm not sure about that but it did smell good.
I decided to buy new sheets to
mark the occasion.
Ahh, a pinterest success!
Every night when I get in bed I feel
like I'm floating on a cloud...
