I’m Feeling Less Embarrassed About Being a Slob

Or at least about not making my bed unless company will see the bed room.

While making your bed may seem tidy, it’s been known by scientists for years that making your bed increases the growth of mites. During the night, you sweat and that moisture is absorbed by the bed. In turn this moisture provides a hospitable environment for the mites who breed and multiply as they feed on your dead skin cells. If their concentrations get too high, you may experience itchiness or other symptoms from their excrement. For the best results, don’t make your bed, which helps it dry out during the day.

Yup, that’s a magnified picture of those nasty dust mites and since I’m allergic to them (along with many other things) not making the bed is one less thing to feel guilty about.

also don’t wash the chicken before you cook it and if you get sick from chicken salad don’t blame the mayonaise.
