Researchers discovered that making your bed tends to create an environment in your bed that is suitable for the dust mites to thrive in.

People tend to sweat when they sleep, which creates a warm and moist space for microscopic creatures to survive. So these creatures tend to make their home on the bed we sleep. They feed on the dead invisible skins from the comfort of this warm place.

Now when a person throws the bed sheets to a side, it is better to just leave it there. This way fresh air and light will kill the dust mites that have settled onto the bed.


Simply making your bed quickly in the morning would deprive those sheets of the much-required air and sunlight.

The source also suggested that those who are a bit more conscious may try tidying up their bed later in the day after it has seen air and light for at least a few hours.

These dust mites can lead to serious sickness, especially among the people suffering from asthma or those who are allergic to dust.
