Dust mites

Did you know that making your bed makes it an extra-comfy home for dust mites? When you make your bed in the mornings, you’re trapping millions of dust mites in the bed, protecting them from drying out and dying in the bright daylight and giving them a safe place to eat, poop, and breed. If you don't make your bed, you expose the mites to the regular atmosphere of your house. Moving air and sun are too harsh for these little creatures to survive, so they die, making your bed just a little less gross at the end of the day.
