Did you know that if you make your bed right after getting up in the morning, millions of dust mites that live in your bed will remain trapped between the sheets feeding on dead skin cells and sweat? Precisely these mites are possible causes of asthma and allergy.
Because if you leave your bed unmade and open, the exposure of the creatures to fresh air and light dehydrate and die.
When we sleep, we sweat. An interesting fact is that the average person can sweat up to a liter of liquid per night. Sweat is the ideal breeding ground for mites.
Scientists estimate that astounding amount of 1.5 million dust mites residing in a middle bed are feeding on our old skin cells that we spill onto our sheets while we sleep.
Actually, their existence does not cause problems, but what they leave behind causes problems for humans. Its secretions can cause allergy to dust and cause asthma attacks when inhaled.
Carolyn Forte is director of the cleaning laboratory at the Good Housekeeping Institute. She advises leaving her bed unmade for some time during the morning so the sheets have the opportunity to dry out of her nightly throws.
Forte says that you should make your bed after your breakfast and be ready for the day.
Another important thing to mention is to wash the sheets every one to two weeks. Also, do not forget the pillow cases.
So it is not a scientific excuse that justifies if you have not made your bed all day.
The explanation is simple, after exposure to fresh air and light, dust mites in your bed will die, and then you can breathe much easier.
