Mattresses are often forgotten about when it comes to weekly or even monthly chores, but they do need cleaning.

Sweat and bacteria can cause dust mites to harbour in and on mattresses so it’s important to keep it fresh.

Cleaning guru @thecosyneutralhome has shared the ultimate hack to eliminate unsightly mattress stains.

Taking to Instagram to share the hack, the cleaning guru simply sprinkled baking soda onto the yellow stain.

She then took Fabulosa’s white vinegar spray until the whole stain was drenched in the household essential.

The majority of white vinegar has a strong scent but Fabulosa recently launched a rose-scented one.

Other brands of vinegar can be purchased from supermarkets including Tesco, Asda and Sainsbury’s.

The powerful cleaning duo were then left for 10 minutes to work before she came back and scrubbed the area.

Baking soda helps to eliminate odours whilst white vinegar’s acidic content helps to lift the stain.

It’s important to leave the mattress to then air dry fully to avoid any more bacteria beginning to grow.

The cleaning guru then returned to the mattress and the yellow stain had completely banished.
