When you read about keeping your home tidy you like have read to make your bed first thing in the morning. However, is this really a good habit? For keeping your home looking tidy, sure but if you want your home to be clean it’s not a good idea.

Why You Shouldn   t Make the Bed in the Morning

At night we sweat and shed skin cells, dust mites love both of these things and really thrive in damp, humid climates. When you get out of bed and make it right away you are trapping a lot of the moisture. Airing out the bed for awhile before making it can help reduce the moisture and reduce the number of dust mites as well.

A study by Kingston University discovered dust bites can’t survive in warm, dry conditions found in unmade beds.

“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,” said Researcher Dr Stephen Pretlove.

When I get up in the morning I like to open the blinds, if it’s sunny, and pull the blankets back to the end of the bed and let the bed air out for at least a few hours before making it.

Dust mites are too small to be seen with the naked eye. They are arthropods like spiders. And they may be the cause of your allergy symptoms. The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America says that about 20 million Americans have dust mite allergy.

While you can’t make your home dust mite proof you can reduce their numbers by doing simple things like letting your bed air out before making it. I will discuss more ways to reduce dust mites in next month’s series on spring cleaning.

Do you make your bed first thing in the morning or do you wait?
