    Will this process take care of possible dust mites?

    thanks....came just in time to help out grand-daughter to remove urine from a couch......cushion is the batting type so going to wash it with outdoor hose and bleach, then do the baking soda.

      Spray with hydrogen peroxide before hosing it down and let it sit for an hour first. Will kill anything in the couch first then you can hose it down. Let it dry completely before using baking soda or you will have clumps forming on the couch.

    I've been using baking soda for years to remove odors, but for some unknown reason it's started to really aggravate my allergies. We bought a nice, electric air purifier, and it had an Arm & Hammer baking soda infused filter. My eyes started burning, itching, my throat burned and it gave me a headache. After we removed the baking soda infused filter and put in a plain filter, my allergy symptoms stopped. Weird, huh?
