“This method is such a winner and I am so proud of it. I tested it on older and newer stains, and it worked so well.”
Chantel added that three percent hydrogen peroxide should be available at your local supermarket or pharmacy, and you should always do a “patch test” before cleaning your mattress, as every product is different.
To make the spray at home, Chantel recommends simply mixing about three percent hydrogen peroxide with a “squeeze dish soap” in a spray bottle.
Then spray the solution on your mattress until it is slightly damp.

Three percent hydrogen peroxide
1. Mix about three percent hydrogen peroxide with a dash of dish soap in a spray bottle.
2. Spray the solution directly on your mattress until it is slightly damp.
3. Sprinkle some bicarb soda over the solution and rub it in lightly with a brush.
4. Let it soak in completely for 15 minutes before vacuuming.
5. The stains should be gone and you should be able to reapply your sheets and covers.

After this, Chantel advises sprinkling some bicarb soda over the solution and rubbing it in lightly with a brush.
“Let it sit for fifteen minutes before you suck up the bicarb soda,” Chantel said.
“The stains should have disappeared and you’d do well to put your sheets and duvets on them.”
Thousands who saw the simple recipe were impressed and said they couldn’t wait to try it at home.
“This is actually the best hack you’ve shared yet,” one commenter wrote.
“Incredible,” added another.

This isn’t Chantel Mila’s first home hack to impress online.

First, Chantel told you to undress your bed, remove all bedding and then vacuum your mattress.
This should remove any dirt and grime from under the mattress, meaning you won’t be sleeping on it.
The second thing Mila told you to do is mix baking soda with your favorite essential oil in a glass container and then sprinkle the mixture over your mattress.
Leave it on for a few hours to allow the scent to soak into the mattress.
At the same time, take the time to wash all your linens and sheets, and make sure to change your pillows and blankets every three to six months.

When it comes to getting brighter, whiter sheets, mom recommends washing your linens with half a cup of white vinegar instead of fabric softener, and adding a little baking soda to your laundry.
Baking soda is a natural deodorant. You can use less detergent by putting it in your laundry,’ said Mila.
“Vinegar softens and brightens linens without leaving a residue.”
Finally, Chantel said you should vacuum up all the baking soda to remove excess product, and finish with a linen spray you love.
