Almost impossible: If you have bed bugs in your matress you should get rid of it. The bugs are so small and so resistant to pesitcides you are unlikley to be able to get them out of your matress.

Can you replace the: Mattress? Agree w earlier answer. If the bed bugs are in your mattress - they are likely all over the surrounding area too. If you can't afford a new mattress then place mattress in a specialized mattress container. Declutter entire bedroom & any other effected rooms. Check this site for instructions: http://treatmentforbedbugs.Com/ place all junk in tightly sealed plastic & dispose of it.
