A Fresh and Inviting Bed

Good-bye Odors. Next time you change your sheets, strip off the mattress pad as well, and sprinkle baking soda directly on the mattress. Let sit for a few hours, then vacuum away the excess. The baking soda will help absorb any lingering odors and staleness.

Wash Away Dust Mites. Toss polyester and down pillows two at a time in the washing machine. Launder on gentle, and use hot water, which destroys dust mites. After the spin cycle, blot excess water with a towel and put in the dryer; tumble dry on low with a few tennis balls thrown in.

Spritz Up Some Sweet Dreams. Pick your favorite relaxing essential oil and add 20 drops to 2 tbs. of vodka (the odorless alcohol helps water and oil to mix) in a spray bottle. Fill the rest with distilled water and mist on linens.

Flip Easier. Time to flip the mattress? Slide a garbage bag under the mattress on the side you pull toward you to help it slide easily.
