Your bed - the same dirty place as the toilet rim. Admit it, how often do you take to bed with a laptop with your favorite TV series, wrapped in a blanket and eat something delicious? Believe me, allow yourself to this little innocent fun - very unhygienic.
What you can find in his cozy bed?
Fungus, bacteria, animal dander, pollen, dirt, lint, dead skin cells, separation of the body.
Maybe you think you are the most neat and clean person, take a shower five times a day and rub hands antibacterial liquid. Do not flatter yourself. The average person produces per year about 100 liters of sweat in my bed. Thus creates the ideal environment for the life of the fungus.
In a study in 2015, it was found that the feather and synthetic pillows, which are used by a half to 20 years, contain from 4 to 17 species of fungus. Dust mites also love to hide in your bed, causing nasal congestion, and aggravation of allergies.
Another problem: pets in the bed. Yes, they are practically family members and loved to lie on your pillows. But not only that this is not the best way affects the quality of your sleep, it is also unhygienic. Apart from the already mentioned wool, animals bring to your bed a lot of germs.
And if you eat in bed, you are making the situation worse. Food creates a breeding ground for germs: you do not see them, but their presence is clearly a toll on your health.
So, what happens when you leave crumbs and other remnants of his dinner under the sheet? The most obvious and unpleasant symptoms that you have time to finish with immobile dinners - the invasion of ants and cockroaches. People who do not like to clean up after themselves, a great risk: in order to survive, the insects need very little food, so get rid of them is not easy.
It is expected that on your menu depends on what what insects will want to live in your home.
- Sweets like soda, juices, cakes and pastries attract ants, as well as indoor, black-headed blue and green padalnyh flies.
- Cereal, pizza, burgers and chicken attract ants and cockroaches.
In general, do not forget about the simple rules of hygiene: change bed linen every three days. Even once a week is enough to reduce the number of germs to a minimum. Let the bedroom remains a sacred place where you go to relax and gain strength.
