Ever since we were little, most of our parents would tell us to clean our room and that would include making the bed. Almost everyone had this thought while making their bed and that is, “Why do I need to make my bed…it’s just going to get messy again.” Well everyone who ever had that thought, here’s the answer you’ve been looking for.
Apparently when you make your bed it stimulates dust mites. What are dust mites you say?! They are insects that live in places where humans live, like a house. Also the mites are so small that you can’t see them with your eye.
While you sleep at night about 1 million or maybe more dust mites are there with you, especially when when the temperature is moist. According to a Kingston University study “the bugs which are less than a millimetre long feed on scales of human skin and produce allergens which are easily inhaled during sleep.”
The only way these insects survive is by pumping from the atmosphere into the glands on their body. A way to keep the dust mites away is by keeping our beds unmade. This helps the moisture that you were laying on to leave. The mites will then die each by each everyday
This reminds me of the worms and how kids from the higher economic background don’t usually have worms in their stomach. So if we don’t make our bed every day then there will be less dust mites to worry about.
