Clean Your Bed The Natural Way With Numatic

We are all looking for new and effective ways to implement sustainable actions into our everyday lives. The way you clean is a big factor. That’s why we bring you a few sustainable ways to clean your bed, with natural ingredients that won’t cause harm.

Baking Soda

You may have some baking soda in your kitchen or pantry, but did you know that this simple household ingredient is super effective in cleaning too? In fact, baking soda is fast-acting, and can effectively be used to clean a number of surfaces, including your mattress! And because it is a pure, natural product, it is safe to use around the home.

On your bed…

Simply sprinkle baking soda on your mattress, along with a few drops of your favourite essential oil. Let it sit for a few minutes on your bare mattress and allow it to absorb some of the sweat, allergins and more left behind on your bed. Next, take your Numatic vacuum cleaner and vacuum up the residue along with the germs. The addition of a fragrant essential oil also means that you’ll be left with a pleasant and fresh aroma.

White vinegar

Another staple in your kitchen, vinegar can be used in a variety of dishes and also for cleaning! In fact, white vinegar is a magical ingredient and can help to disinfect everything including the kitchen sink!

Research suggests that white vinegar, when used correctly, can help to dissolve mineral deposits, bacteria, dirt, grease, and grime. From descaling kettles to removing limescale, it’s a natural disinfectant that is brilliant for cleaning.

On your bed…

Need to remove yucky stains and vomit from your mattress? Make a solution of water and white vinegar at 50% ratios each. Add it to a spray bottle and treat the soiled mattress with the solution. Blot with a clean cloth and repeat until clean.

After your routine clean, vacuum your mattress and spray it with your vinegar solution for a fresh scent that will last.


Did you know that salt is an excellent household cleaner? Salt is a natural antibacterial and has been used for cleaning since medieval times! A bit of salt, some hot water and a dash of white vinegar down the drain can break down grease, food and bad smells.

On your bed…

Trying to eliminate messes and stains on your mattress? Simply mix up a paste of lemon juice and salt. Apply the mixture to the stain, and let it stand for 30–60 minutes. Wipe off salt with a clean cloth and be sure to remove all the residue. Ensure that you allow each spot to dry out before fully vacuuming the mattress.

Take better care of your bed and ensure the longevity of this furniture piece in your bedroom. Be sure to invest in a quality vacuum cleaner that will make your life so much easier! No more mess, no more grime, and now, with these useful tips, no more stinky, stained, or dirty mattresses!
