The health benefits of an unmade bed

The next time you're scolded for not making your bed, explain that an unmade bed is healthier than a nicely made one.

It seems that disarrayed bedding allows moisture to escape, which makes it harder for allergy-aggravating dust mites to survive.

Note, however, that this news does not mean that it's okay to go weeks without changing the sheets.

And bamboo sheets apparently do a good job of preventing creepy-crawly growth.
