... and, speaking of unmade beds (photo-meme, 19 jan '07) here's an interesting tid-bit for all you messy-bed people:

Jeff Bredenberg, author of How to Cheat at Cleaning (Taunto) advises readers to stop making beds. "Dust mites thrive on moisture in your bed cover and mattress," he explains. The mites cuse asthma and other breathing difficulties. "When you leave your bed unmade all day, the moisture escapes and the dust mites die."

So THERE, mom!

I've never made my bed. I couldn't understand it. I was just going to unmake it in a few hours.

Then again, I am the Anti-June-Cleaver.

if only this would work for my brother - probably both the person who's bed is made the fewest times per year, and at the same time who has one of the worst case of asthma...

then again, the constant dust in the appartment probably doesn't help.

Interresting how it justifies "airing" the bed sheets, covers and pillows, like they did in our parent's or grandparent's generations...
