Your bed is full of bacteria harmful for the lungs - here's how you will eliminate it quickly, easily and naturally
Do you make your bed right after you get up?
If so, you should know that when you do this, you trap millions of microscopic creatures called Dust Mites between the bedding, and they stay there to be nourished by your dead skin cells and sweat and thus cause asthma and allergies.
Therefore, even though you want to tidy up your bedroom, it is much healthier and correct not to make the bed for a few hours so that it dries out and these little creatures are eliminated.
According to Dr. Stefan Partelow of Kingston University, we trap sweat, skin cells, and body heat in bed when we tidy it up in the morning, and if you leave it untidy, you expose the bedding to light and air that kills millions of dust mites.
During the night, we sweat up to a liter of fluid, making the bed a perfect living environment for dust mites.
Moreover, it is estimated that 1.5 million dust mites live in the average bed, feed on dead skin cells, and their secretions can lead to allergies and asthma attacks.
On the other hand, according to Carolyn Forte, director of the cleaning lab at the Good Housekeeping Institute, leaving the bed untidy does not make a big difference in a bed full of dust mites, but she says it can be very helpful.
She says it is better to eat breakfast and only then make the bed, so that the bedding will have enough time to dry. She also recommends washing the bedding and pillows once a week.
Dr. Stefan Partelow says, "We know that dust mites can only survive by consuming water from the air with the help of glands that it has outside the body."
"Something as simple as leaving the bed untidy during the day can remove the moisture from the bedding and mattress so that the dust mites will dry out and eventually die."
So it's very important not to make the bed in the morning after you wake up, let the bedding dry, let the air do its work, and it will eliminate the millions of creatures that live in your bed, and you did not even know they\ were there. This way you will protect yourself from various allergies that can cause a realy unpleasant discomfort.
