Good in a cocktail, better as a disinfectant. Got a stubborn odor on your mattress? Vodka is an odorless antiseptic that evaporates quickly, eliminating the odor and odor-causing bacteria that go overlooked in ordinary cleaning.
- Fill a spray bottle with vodka—Silent Sam will do; no need to pull out the Ketel One or Russian Standard.
- Add a couple of drops of essential oil for an extra scent boost.
- Shake well, and spray liberally over the mattress.
- Let the mattress dry completely before making the bed.
- Repeat as needed.
