Sleep in' dirty – Unwashed duvets become a hotbed for mites
This might be a wake up call to get the duvets washed and clean. Research has found out that many Britons do not wash their duvets even in six months, and these could be the most happening places for mites, filth and even dead skin.

A survey conducted in many households revealed that two in five Britons confessed to sleeping on duvets unwashed for 6 months. The dust mites and filth are potential health hazards that can trigger a host of illnesses - asthma, rhinitis and conjunctivitis. They could also worsen prevailing incidence of eczema.
