“I thought the memory foam might not contain much dust, but I was wrong,” she captioned the post on social media.

“I didn’t know that the velor cover that covers the mattress can hold so much dust!”

Michelle admitted that the mattress had probably not been cleaned in “a few years”, but the mattress protector is washed regularly.

“I’m still shocked by the results, but I’ll sleep better tonight after seeing what came out!” she said.

According to the Sleep Foundation, you should aim to thoroughly clean your mattress every six months and use a mattress protector.

Home cleaning experts claim that one of the quickest and cheapest ways to clean your mattress is to strip it and sprinkle it with baking soda for a few hours before vacuuming it clean.

Baking soda removes odors by removing dirt, moisture and dust mites, leaving your mattress fresh and sparkling clean.

How do you thoroughly clean your bed with baking soda?

1. Strip the bed and vacuum the mattress.

2. Mix baking soda with essential oil and sprinkle it all over the mattress – let it sit for several hours.

3. Wash linens, sheets and pillowcases.

4. Vacuum the baking soda mixture and make the bed.

5. Finish with linen spray.
