The blankets, mattresses, pillows and sheets we sleep on are a convenient environment for the development of bacteria, dust mites and buildup.

So, in order to prevent any side health effects, it is necessary to change and wash the linens on a regular basis. It is of utter importance to get rid of the sweat, dirt, buildup and bacteria from the mattresses properly.

SIDE EFFECTS OF DUST MITES

• Allergic reactions can be caused by either dead dust mites or dust mite feces. Even if we ventilate the bed, the dust mites can get stuck in the mattresses and cause numerous health issues. The most common symptoms of allergies caused by dust mites include watery eyes, sneezing, red eyes, coughing, asthma, sore throat, congestion, etc.

• Eye boogers

• Headaches

• Skin issues

• Insomnia

Studies say that we should not make our beds a few hours after we wake up. We need to open the windows, so that the air can ventilate the bed. Another thing we should do is to disinfect the mattresses at least once a month.

In this article, we are going to show you how to get rid of all dirt from your mattresses in an easy way. It is really easy. All you need to do is to vacuum the mattresses and spill baking soda on them.

First, spill baking soda on one side of the mattress and let it stay for 30 minutes. Then, spill baking soda on the other side and let it stay for another 30 minutes.

Baking soda effectively removes bacteria, whereas vacuuming helps clean the accumulated dust. Finally, in a spray bottle, mix water and several drops of an essential oil and spray the solution over the mattresses.
