Fortunately, TikTok user @mama_mila_ shared a quick and easy tip that will allow you to do just that. Plus, keeping your bed smelling fresh only requires two simple ingredients – and it can be customized according to your aroma preferences.

As demonstrated by user Chantel Mila in her TikTok video, all you need to do to keep your bedding smelling amazing is to spray a mixture of baking soda and essential oil directly onto the mattress.

As anyone who has left an open box of baking soda in the fridge to absorb any odors knows, the product is inexpensive and works as a powerful deodorizer, eliminating any lingering odors in the mattress. The essential oils, on the other hand, will provide a burst of pleasant aroma. After some time, simply vacuum up the mixture and enjoy your freshly scented bedding.

Since you are trying to freshen up a sleeping space, consider using essential oils that promote better sleep, such as lavender, ylang-ylang, eucalyptus, and valerian.

Some details about the tip

While you may be concerned that spraying essential oil directly onto the mattress could cause stains, pure essential oils should not stain. However, if you are worried, test a drop in a discreet area of your mattress first.

Additionally, while you can certainly spray a few drops of the chosen oil, consider mixing it with the baking soda so that the aroma is evenly distributed throughout the mattress. According to One Good Thing, the mixture should consist of approximately 1 cup of baking soda and 4 to 5 drops of the chosen essential oil.

As for how long to leave the mixture before vacuuming, it is a matter of preference. Chantel Mila clarified in the comments section of her TikTok video that it should be left for at least 20 minutes. But it can easily be left for up to 10 hours. So, there is ample time to sprinkle the mixture, wait for your sheets to wash and dry, and then make your bed with your freshly laundered bedding.
