Most people like to start their day off right by making sure they've made their bed in the morning.
However, according to experts, there is a gross reason that you shouldn't be doing that.
Mattress experts at And So To Bed say that, especially in the summer, a lot of moisture and sweat is built up within the sheets.
In fact, the average adult loses 285ml of fluid each night, according to The Sleep Council.
So during the warmer months when the temperature is higher, you apparently need to pull back the bed linen in order to let the mattress 'breathe' before you make it.
This apparently gives the moisture a chance to evaporate.
And it's not just the folks at So To Bed who are saying this.
Others experts appear to be giving people the same advice.
TikTok star Dr Karan Raj has also given the advice to his fans on the social media network.
The NHS doctor said: "Stop making your bed first thing in the morning, it's going to make you healthy.
"Making your bed in the morning traps dust mites that have accumulated over night. These microscopic predators, which are less than a millimetre long, feed on the scales of human skin and thrive in moist environments.
"When we sleep at night, our bodies become warm and sweaty, making them prime targets for these mites to feed on.
"They will leave behind excretions which can give us asthma or allergy-like symptoms.
"So making your bed in the morning traps all this moisture and provides a home for 1.5 million of these bad boys."
He added: "Instead leave your bed messy just for a while. It exposes these mites to air and sunlight, which dehydrate them and causes them to die."
The news comes as it was revealed millions of Brits are losing sleep because of the temperature – and a snoring partner.
