Cleaning Expert Gives Grim Warning About Making Your Bed First Thing In The Morning


Making your bed when you wake up is viewed by many as a sign of organisation and readiness for the day.

Also, your parents and partners will urge you to do it to maintain the appearance of your room.

The shocking explanation for why this is something “you need to stop doing” right away, according to a cleaning expert, has just been made public.

Mrs. D is renowned for giving practical organising tips with her 130,000 Instagram followers.

She is currently advising people to refrain from making their beds the first thing in the morning and to give them a chance to “breathe.”

She asserts that individuals should remove their covers for a while after waking up since hot, damp sheets attract bed bugs and filth throughout the course of a night.

Mrs D explains “It seems a lot of people get up and make the bed straight away. 

“This is something you need to stop doing.

“Get out of bed and throw the duvet back and let your bed breathe.

“During the night we not only sweat but we also shed skin, and this is a magnet for dust mites and bed bugs.

“They love damp and humid areas, and some people only let their bed breathe in the summer, and think that you don’t need to do this in the winter because of the cold weather.

“But this isn’t true. With central heating being on in the winter it can attract dust mites and bed bugs just as much as in the summer months.

“So, by making your bed first thing every morning you are trapping all that damp air and helping dust mites and bed bugs breed (sounds horrible, but it’s true).”

Mrs. D adds that individuals should “air them for at least an hour a day” in order to keep them as clean as possible.

She continues: “I know it’s nice to see your bedroom looking clean and fresh and of course we lead busy lives, which means it’s easy to make the bed before you go to work.

“But doing this will help a lot. 

“If you don’t have an hour in the morning, leave it ‘til you get home, and make the bed then… at least you know it’s had a good airing.”

The influencer also has bad news for those who don’t wash their sheets regularly.

“Wash your sheets once a week, using a high wash cycle and a laundry cleanser, this will kill any bacteria on your bedding,” she advises.

“Once a month, deep clean your mattress by vacuuming it and then using a steam cleaner to kill all bacteria and dust mites.

“Wash your duvets and pillows every six months. 

“If you can fit them in your own washing machine then take them to the launderette. 

“Most launderettes offer a duvet-cleaning service.”

Many of Mrs. D’s followers comment on the post saying they’ll be using her advice.

One person wrote: “I didn’t know this! Will definitely do from now on.”

Another said: “I’ve been doing that for years, I have allergies and it helps.”

“Always air the bed then make it before I get in – lovely and fresh,” added a third.
