To clean carpets & mattresses: Pour about 1C of baking soda (enough for one mattress) into a mason jar & drop in 4 drops of lavender essential oil. Put on lid & shake jar. Using a kitchen strainer sprinkle the baking soda mixture all over the mattress/carpet & let it sit for an hour or more then thoroughly vacuum. Bye, bye dust mites and other nasty things. The baking soda helps draw up any moisture and deep dirtiness. It deodorizes and leaves the mattress or carpet smelling fresh & clean.
