I'm a cleaning expert and here's why you SHOULDN'T make your bed everyday – it'll ruin your sleep

FOR a lot of people, starting the day by making the bed is part of a daily routine.

However, one cleaning expert has explained that it's actually a bad idea to make the bed first thing – because it increases the likelihood of dust mites getting in the sheets.

"You should never make your bed first thing in the morning," Cleanhome_cleanmind wrote on TikTok, over a video of someone making a bed.

In the caption, they further explained: "Letting your bed air out (for at least 1 hour) is a good solution to reduce the number of dust mites."

According to the experts And So To Bed, making your bed every morning could actually hinder your sleep as the duvet traps all the moisture.

Instead, the experts recommend pulling back your bed linen to properly air out your mattress and give it a chance to breathe – especially during the warm summer months.
