People mostly make their beds after they wake up. However, experts claim that this habit has its downfalls.
If you make your bed then you trap millions of dust mites between the sheets and the bacteria thrive on dead skin cells and sweat, causing asthma and allergies.
If you leave your bed unmade hen bacteria will be exposed to fresh air and sunlight that will destroy them. During sleep we sweat, scientists claim. The average sweat amount that we produce goes to 1 liter a night and it makes it the ideal surrounding for mites.
There are approximately 1.5 million mites residing in your bed. Their existence does not cause an issue, however, what they leave behind does. Their excretions are responsible for dust allergies and asthma flare ups.
The director of cleaning lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute, Carolyn Forte, says that if you leave your bed unmade for some time after waking up in the morning will be an amazing decision because sheets will have the time to dry from nighttime tossing and turning.
Wash your sheets and pillowcase every two weeks.
