Did you know that a person spends an average of one third of his life in the bedroom? A healthy and clean room is so fine, but unfortunately some dirt can not be prevented.
Ten facts about your bedroom that you probably did not know, but that you probably never forget…
Ten Unsavory Facts About Your Bedroom
1. You sleep on average with about 1.5 million dust mites at night
Spontaneously got the jitters of this fact? No worries: there is also good news. If you return your duvet neatly every morning, you will suffer considerably less from those critters.
2. Your floor covering contains 4,000 times more bacteria than your toilet
Bah, not really a good thought right? To significantly reduce that number, it is important to vacuum your bedroom at least once a week.
3. Your phone is also dirtier than your toilet seat
Indeed: that thing that you keep on your face every day, put under your pillow or on your bedside table. To kill those bacteria, it is important to take a cloth with alcohol on your phone every day.
4. Your pillow is mostly dust mite and dead skin cells
In fact, your pillow has doubled in weight within three years thanks to those uninvited guests. Therefore, you should always put your pillow in the washing machine.
5. And the same applies to your mattress
Not only your pillow, but also your mattress is a source of dust mite and dead skin cells. A mattress that is eight years old contains more than four kilos of dead skin cells. Therefore, regularly remove the hose from your vacuum cleaner over your bed to remove the worst dirt.
6. Your pajamas is a source of bacteria
At least, if you do the same as the average woman. Research shows that most women wear their pajamas for 17 nights in a row. Prevent dirty bacteria by wearing your pajamas no longer than three days in a row.
7. Every year about four kilos of sweat disappears in your bed
Especially at night we sweat a lot. Stop nasty smells by regularly spraying your mattress with for example Lysol. That drug kills bacteria that are responsible for unpleasant smells.
8. Your old make-up products are a source of bacteria
Are you always a bit lax when it comes to throwing away makeup? You better not be: make-up products that are about the expiry date can contain harmful bacteria. Therefore, make sure that you regularly replace your make-up products.
9. You can get sick of dirty door handles
If someone in your household is sick, you can still get sick about two days after that person leaves his bacteria somewhere. Therefore, spray a disinfectant regularly over your door handle.
10. sleeping with a pet can make you sick
In fact, you can even get a parasite. In fact, every direct contact with your dog brings a risk of infections. So make sure you change your bedding at least once a week or keep your pets out of your bed from now on.
