Rugs can be very beneficial in the bedroom, especially beneath beds. They can protect the flooring from damage from the bed frame. They provide warmth, especially in colder months of the year. More importantly, they can complete a design or add texture and depth to a room. When used beneath a bed, they can help anchor the layout of the furniture, including the bed, within the room.
Set your washer to the hottest water temperature setting and a normal wash cycle. As the washer is filling with water, add the recommended amount of detergent according to the bottle.

Warm water will help kill allergens. Before washing on warm, be sure to check the care instructions on your bed sheets. Some bed sheets may require cold water for washing. Warm water can be used for washing in most cases, but if your bed sheets are really soiled, hot water can be used.

Bed bug bites are sometimes mistaken for mosquito or flea bites. However, there are a few signs you can look for to distinguish bed bug bites from those of other insects.
