SUM­MER FRESH

Landscape (UK) - - In The Home -

Bright, sunny days are ideal for air­ing the mat­tress as sun­light kills dust mites and its UV rays have an­timi­cro­bial prop­er­ties. The mat­tress is stripped of bed­ding and vac­cu­umed clean. If pos­si­ble, it is taken out­side and propped up where it can air in di­rect sun­light for 2-6 hours. It can al­ter­na­tively be leaned against a wall in­doors with the room’s win­dows thrown open, if it is too dif­fi­cult to take it out­side. After­wards it is re­turned to the bed and made up with newly washed sheets. This semi-an­nual task helps the bed stay clean and fresh.
