Memory Foam Mattress Topper Dont Make the Bed

Unless you have dust mite resistant bedding such as a memory foam mattress topper, research has shown that making your bed in the morning can actually be bad for you!

Dont make the bed! 

Its every teenagers dream their mother tells them every day to make their bed, nag, nag, nag and then one day, The News reports that making your bed can actually be bad for you. It isnt about bending over and risking your back but the risk of dust mites. More people than ever are becoming aware of the risk of dust mites and are investing in dust mite resistant bedding such as memory foam mattresses or a memory foam mattress topper.

Memory foam mattress topper reduce risks 

Dust mites are happiest in our beds warm, moist places that offer them the right habitat including plenty of food (flaky skin!) and water (our perspiration). Its not pretty, and it isnt just that the thought of skin feeding bugs wriggling around your mattress that is awful. They are a real risk to allergy and asthma sufferers who should consider using a memory foam mattress topper to reduce the risks.

Untidy beds 

So why is it good that we dont make the bed? Scientists believe that although it looks messy, it is less appealing to the dreaded dust mite. The average bed could contain between 1.5 million and 2 million house dust mites. But leaving beds unturned makes it harder for them to survive as conditions are drier. The allergens the bugs create can be easily inhaled when you sleep, which is why its important to have a memory foam mattress topper.

Memory foam mattress topper dont breathe allergens 

The moist warm conditions while we sleep in our beds are ideal of mites, but they are less likely to thrive in drier conditions. The mites die when they dehydrate. There are plenty of daily routines that can impact on whether house mites thrive including well watered house plants, aquariums, humidifiers and made beds anywhere moist. Heating, ventilation and insulation could all impact on how mites thrive. The fact they are so resilient is why many people now buy anti allergen and dust mite resistant bedding such as the memory foam mattress toper. An average of 700m a year is spent on treating mite-induced illnesses.
