You lose a liter of body moisture every night, creating a perfect breeding ground in your mattress for bacteria and dust mites. The dust mite is found in every home, particularly in bedding, mattresses and under sheets where they thrive in large numbers.
They eat microscopic flakes of human skin which we shed every night during our sleep. Your mattress can’t be washed, and, if unprotected, its inhabitants and dust can cause various allergies such as asthma, runny nose, watery eyes, morning congestion, eczema and hay fever.
