"A ten-year-old mattress weighs double what it did when it was new due to debris that it absorbs over time. That debris includes dust mites (their droppings and decaying bodies), mold, millions of dead skin cells, dandruff, animal and human hair, secretions, excretions, lint, pollen, dust, soil, sand, and a lot of perspiration, which the average person loses at a rate of a quart a day. Good night!"

You rascal. I could have gone the rest of my life without reading that. Now I'll probably stay awake all night feeling little microscopic critters on me. :yuck:

Our daughter got a good case of bedbugs at her apartment a few years ago, so my wife insisted we put airtight covers on every mattress in the house. I can guarantee ours don't have all that.

My husband asked me the other day if I knew how it felt to be dead.. I looked at him, probably said some sort of smartallic reply...but then he said. What did it feel like before you were born? :???:

When helping our daughter deal with the problem we were very careful not to transfer them to our house, so I don't believe the airtight mattress covers were really necessary, but I've been married long enough that I kept that opinion to myself.

Reckon I've slept on worse in some rig bunkhouses. I've seen guys sleep with no shower and no sheet on those mattresses
