  • I never thought of vacuuming the mattresses, but I did hear that it is better to leave your bed unmade that way it is cooler and the mites won't survive as well as in a made bed.

  • I know what bed mites are, but seeing as I don't sleep directly on my mattress - I still won't be vacuuming my mattress. You don't honestly think a vacuum with be getting all the microscopic bed mites, do you?

  • yes ladies, if I were you I would try to. I have for for about the last 8 years. After watching a show on Dr. Oz a while ago I make sure to do it all the time, my vacuum has a spinning hand held handle that works great.
    Just to let you know I am not a clean freak..lol.. you should see my house, it is funny how I worry about the little things little the heaters, mirowave, closets..lol.. Now the rest of my house! MESSY..
