Mum, you were wrong.
I remember as a kid. Always made to make you bed when you get up so that it didn’t look so untidy. Well, mum, thanks for exposing me to an unnecessary quantity of dust mite faeces!
The BBC have an article today showing that leaving your bed unmade is good for you. Apparently, dust mites don’t like the crumpled look.
Research suggests that while an unmade bed may look scruffy it is also unappealing to house dust mites thought to cause asthma and other allergies.
A Kingston University study discovered the bugs cannot survive in the warm, dry conditions found in an unmade bed.
So there you go. If you don’t want to share you bed with 1.5 million dust mites and their shit, just leave your bed unmade. I new there was a reason I was so untidy.
