If you have a child, it’s 99.9% possible you’ve had a pee-in-the-bed situation. Now normally I don’t pay too close attention to my mattress, but for some reason, on this fateful Sunday, I was pretty damn repulsed at my bare mattress. I know you’re with me if you’ve been through potty training.
Seriously, talk about gross. The funny thing is that we had a mattress cover at some point, but somewhere between Dallas and Austin, it got lost.
So, what’s a mom to do with a mattress that looks like a small animal died on it? Figure out how the heck to clean it is what.
After a bit of research I stumbled across two different solutions and one of them worked like a charm! Instead of hoarding this knowledge in my mind, I thought I better share it with the masses as this, my friends, was a #mattressgamechanger.
Here’s what you do:
1. Take a measuring cup and pour 8 ounces of Hydrogen Peroxide in there.
2. Take Three Tablespoons of baking soda and pour it into the peroxide. Mix it a little.
3. Pour the mixture in the spray bottle
4. Drop literally one drop of dish soap in the bottle.
5. Mix it up
6. Get sprayin’
Spray as much of the bottle as you want on the stains you have on the mattress. Put your ceiling fan on high and in about an hour…VOILA!
I know! CRAZY amazing how it worked. Now after the first hour there was still some yellowishness, but after the second run it was completely gone!
Amazing–go try it!
