Do you need to spray a deodorant? Apparently not! What we mean to say here is something different. When you buy a new foam mattress, it is bound to cover your entire room with a bad odor. Now you may not like this and so we need to take measures to refresh your room. What you can do here is place a bowl of vinegar inside the room. Vinegar has the ability to absorb the airborne odor keeping your room fresh. You can use this to deodorize drains as well.

4. Baking Soda to deodorize odor

Another way to remove the bad smell is by using a baking soda. It is a natural deodorizer and has the ability to cancel out the bad smell filling up your entire room. What you need to do is sift some baking soda over the mattress and then let this stay for 30 minutes. If required, you can add some essential oil before sifting. This would have a different smell covering the entire atmosphere. Once done, vacuum the soda using an upholstery attachment.
