How many times in your formative years were you told by your parents that you had to make your bed OR ELSE? You’d likely pout and stomp your feet until you inevitably caved and did as you were told. Well, payback’s a real bitch, and now you can tell your folks that they were wrong all along, and this time around you have science to back you up!
It turns out that the odds of damaging your health actually increases for those people who make their beds on a daily basis. How can this be you ask? Dust mites is the short answer. According to research done out of Kingston University in the United Kingdom, Dr. Stephen Pretlove is advising people to leave their beds unmade to help get rid of the mini-monsters that can be problematic for people with asthma or allergies.
