OTTAWA, Ontario, March 15, 2011 /PRNewswire/ -- Can you remember the last time you changed your bedding? If you can't, now is the time to get some new bed linen because the fabric and stuffing absorbs your body oils, shedding skin and strands of hair. In fact, there could be a miniature ecosystem at work inside your pillows. The older your pillow, the more advanced the ecosystem.
Consider the case of the vacuum cleaner salesman. His favorite part of the home presentation is vacuuming the bedding. People would say, "They will be clean, they were new just last year." Then he waited for the inevitable look of horror when he opened the bag and showed them a pile, the size of a bag of sugar, full of dead skin infested with dust mites.
Yes, they live in your bedding. You can't see them but dust mites live in your pillows, in your sheets, and in your mattress by the thousands.
"If you actually knew what these critters looked like, I can almost guarantee you'd change your pillows more often," said Lynn Soucie, co-owner of Beddington's Bed and Bath. "It's something most people don't think about when they think about spring cleaning."
