Leaving Bed Unmade May Control Dust Mites

Calling all allergy sufferers! Researchers in the U.K. have found that leaving your bed unmade during the day reduces the number of dust mites, because the mites need the moisture from the bedding to survive. Therefore - letting the bedding dry/air out will kill many of them! Who knew?

Love it because now I feel as if my 'making the bed is only for when company comes over' has been well worth it! Thumbs up from me ;-)

Well I am in luck. I hate making my bed as I fling covers away when I get up and air out my bed. I am going to show this to my boyfriend to end the nagging that I should immediately make my bed. Ha!
