In autumn, the mites hidden on mattresses, bedding and pillows start to make waves. Tens of millions of mites accompany you to sleep. They are easily accumulated on the skin through human contact, resulting in skin redness, swelling and itching, which is unbearable. The reproduction ability of these mites is very amazing. Once there are mites in the room, it is very difficult to completely remove them.
Which places are most susceptible to mites?
Mattresses, blankets, carpets, pillows, cloth sofas, curtains, wardrobes, etc. are the best places for dust mites to hide. As many as 6500 dust mites can be found in a pillow, while 2 million dust mites can be hidden in a mattress.

6 million mites sleep with you for 3 months
The quilt is often in direct contact with human skin, and it is inevitable that some human scurf and sweat will remain, which is easy to breed mites and bacteria.
Research shows that even if a clean quilt is not exposed to the sun for three consecutive months, millions of mites will breed in it. Mites are the most important allergens. In addition to causing skin allergy, they can also induce allergic diseases such as asthma and allergic rhinitis.
Experts suggest: on a sunny day, take the long-standing thick quilt to the sun for drying before use. Ultraviolet rays in the sun can kill mites, bacteria and various insect eggs in the quilt, and also make the quilt stretch and fluffy, making it more comfortable to cover.
Disinfect and remove mites by drying bedding frequently
Before using the bedding, take it to the sun for a while. Under the action of ultraviolet rays and air flow, it can not only kill the harmful microorganisms in the bedding, but also evaporate the free formaldehyde, and make the fiber of the bedding stretch and fluffy, so that people can sleep comfortably and safely.
In particular, the bedding that is being used, because of the sweat stains that people emit during sleep, the bedding will become damp over a long period of time, and it is prone to mildew. Not only does it smell bad, but also it is prone to produce cotton lice and Mucor spores.
Therefore, more attention should be paid to frequent drying and timely removal of moisture and germs in the cotton batt. This can not only increase the service life of the quilt, but also increase its elasticity and warmth keeping capacity, and is conducive to human health.
