Don't Make Your BED!!! I was so thrilled, there is scientific proof why you should not make your bed. Now I am supposed to be a good southern belle and always have every bed in my house made. But that NEVER happens (ok maybe if we have company coming). What is the point in making a bed that is just going to be messed up again in a few hours? I have never seen the point. Who cares if the blankets are in one big mess, straighten them out before you get in it, or after as I tend to do. It is one less thing to do every day and I like it that way. BUT I was always sorta ashamed of my little habit - UNTIL
I read this:
"Research suggests that while an unmade bed may look scruffy it is also unappealing to house dust mites thought to cause asthma and other allergies.
A Kingston University study discovered the bugs cannot survive in the warm, dry conditions found in an unmade bed."

See I'm not making it up and I'm not ever making my bed! I prefer a bug free bed thanks! (maybe that's why when I crawled into my parents bed as a child I always thought it was itchy - they have too many bugs)
No one ever died from sleeping in an unmade bed. I have known mothers who remake the bed after their children do it because there is wrinkle in the spread or the blanket is on crooked. This is sick. ~ Erma Bombeck
