She says that it is wiser to eat your breakfast and then make the bed so that you will leave enough time for the sheets to dry. Moreover, she suggests washing the sheets and pillowcases every week.
Furthermore, Dr. Stephen Pretlove of Kingston University’s School of Architecture, says “We know that mites can only survive by taking in water from the atmosphere using small glands on the outside of their body.
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.”
So, it is highly beneficial if you leave the bed unmade for some time or even during the entire day, as the fresh air and light will destroy the dust mites, and protect you from health issues like allergies and asthma.
