In order to maintain proper health, you should also pay attention to your mattress. Up to 10 million dust particles are found inside the mattress, according to Ohio University researchers.
Additionally, mattresses are home to mites, which are not as harmful to our health, but their faeces are. They irritate our skin and lungs.
🧹 What should you do?
First, linens should be washed in hot water as this destroys dust mites.
▪ Sprinkle baking soda over the entire mattress using a sieve, but not directly from the container.
▪ You can add a few drops of lavender oil.
▪ Let it work for a few hours and then vacuum up.
▪ When vacuuming, take your time, move very slowly so that you can remove all the dust.
You can try to clean your mattress using a steam device also. Steam cleaning will allow you to remove existing stains and will disinfect the area too. Make sure everything is dry before you put the bed sheets.
Cushions can be full of mites, especially if you sweat a lot at night. Apart from washing the linen, it is highly recommended to buy new pillows every two years.
