Okay, so here’s the thing…. when you sleep you toss, turn and sweat and all that warmth and moisture is trapped under the duvet. If you jump out of bed and throw yourself into making the bed straight away you’ll be giving that warmth and moisture nowhere else to go but to sink into the bedding and mattress and eventually it’ll cause a stale smell. And… who wants a mattress that smells stale???
So airing the bed is a thing and it’s super simple to do and even if you only get chance to air the bed for 30 minutes whilst you get ready for work – it’s worth it.
How to air the bed
- When you get up in the morning – throw open the windows.
- Give the pillows a shake out and return them to the bed.
- Turn the covers right back to the foot of the bed.
- After 30 minutes to an hour (or however long you like) make the bed and close the window.
Your bed and bedroom will be fresher and feel nicer to be in.
