Scientists from London's Kingston University report that house dust mites tend to die in unmade beds where the environment is warm and dry. Thus, unmade beds can help prevent the house mites that may trigger asthma and some allergies. Dust mites produce allergens as they feed on shed human skin found in beds. These allergens can be breathed in during the night and trigger a variety of conditions. An alternative to unmade beds is to use dust-proof or allergen impermeable covers on mattresses and pillows as well as washing bedding weekly in hot water.
