‘This method is such a winner and I’m so proud of it. I’ve tested it against older and newer stains, and it worked so well.’
Chantel added that three per cent hydrogen peroxide should be available from your local supermarket or pharmacy, and you should always ‘patch test’ before cleaning your mattress as every product is different.
To make the spray at home, Chantel recommends you simply mix together some three per cent hydrogen peroxide with a ‘squeeze of dish soap’ in a spray bottle.
Then, spray the solution onto your mattress until it is slightly damp.

Following this, Chantel advises that you sprinkle some bicarb soda on top of the solution and rub it in lightly with a brush.
‘Leave it for 15 minutes before vacuuming up the bicarb soda,’ Chantel said.
‘The stains should have lifted and you should be good to replace your sheets and doonas on top.’
Thousands who saw the simple recipe were impressed and said they couldn’t wait to try it out in their own homes.

This isn’t the first home hack from Chantel Mila that has wowed online.
Previously, the Melbourne mum-of-two shared how you can get hotel-style bedding at home.
Firstly, Chantel said you need to strip down your bed, take off all the bedding and then vacuum your mattress.
This should get rid of any dirt and grime hiding underneath the mattress, and means you’re not sleeping on any of it.
The second thing Mila said you should do is mix baking soda with your favourite essential oil in a glass container and then sprinkle the mixture over your mattress.
Leave this to soak in for a few hours so that the smell gets into the mattress.
At the same time, take the time to wash all of your linen and sheets, making sure you do your pillows and covers every three to six months.

When it comes to how to get brighter, whiter sheets, the mum recommends you wash your linen with half a cup of white vinegar instead of fabric softener, and put a little baking soda into your wash.
‘Baking soda is a natural deodoriser. You can use less detergent by putting it into your wash,’ Mila said.
‘Vinegar softens and brightens linens without leaving a residue.’
Finally, Chantel said you should vacuum up all of the baking soda to remove any excess product, and finish with a linen spray you love.
