My friend Staci has been doing some serious Spring cleaning, and shared her pictures and ideas with me to share with you all! As our big move is just around the corner I haven’t done any real Spring cleaning (scroll down for more details), so I’m so glad she’s shared her tips with us.
To be honest I’m not sure that I’ve ever really deeply cleaned our beds (which I’m shocked to actually say?), so hearing Staci’s suggestions were great for me, and so helpful as a way to get started! Here’s what she recommends:
- Remove everything from bedding and wash all of the linens, mattress pads, and pillow shams (including pillows.)
- Sprinkle baking soda over the entire mattress, then vacuum very slowly to really deep clean.
- Flip the mattress over, then re-do it all again in six months. (She suggests doing it when you spring forward and fall back)
So do you clean your mattresses out well for Spring? I’m so glad Staci shared her tips, and am hoping to get mine done over the next few weeks before we move. I’d love to know what other suggestions you have for giving your bedrooms a good Spring cleaning!
*Note: A PPP reader mentioned that you’ll want to make sure to use a vacuum that can handle baking soda (I assumed that all could, but apparently some are not made for that!) Thanks for letting us know Kristin.
