Today is Make Your Bed Day. It's a day when we're all encouraged to stop slumming it and make our beds. Your bedroom will instantly look neater by making your bed, but did you know that clean bedding is also good for your health? Bedbugs are on the rise so to speak. We may associate them with the past but today they're more prevalent than ever; furthermore a bedbug infestation can make you feel pretty rotten both physically and emotionally, not to mention that you may also be covered in nasty red bites.
