Science Says: Messy Beds Are Healthier!

It’s not a joke, now you’ve got an excuse for not making the bed…

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.


“Something as simple as leaving a bed unmade during the day can remove moisture from the sheets and mattress so the mites will dehydrate and eventually die.”

Cool, no more making beds, that’s one chore off the list! Who are we to argue with science…
