Here are some tips on how it would be best to maintain and clean your mattress, in order to stand in the way of dust mites and other allergens.
Today we will show you a great trick to clean the mattress, which will make your bed a safe place to rest once again. First you need to make a mixture for disinfection and cleaning.

- A few drops of lavender
- A jar
- Sieve (or kitchen droppers)
