2nd hand Mattress dangers!

Looking for a cheap 2nd hand mattress
think again!

A single mattress can contain over one million dust mites (Dermatophagoides farinae Hughes)

they cause multiple diseases such as
Hay fever,
Watering eyes,
Runny nose,
Sneezing,
Asthma, difficulty in breathing,
Infantile eczema 0000000
Itchy, red or watery eyes
Nasal congestion
Itchy nose, roof of mouth or throat
Postnasal drip
Cough
Facial pressure and pain
Frequent awakening
Swollen, blue-colored skin under your eyes
In a child, frequent upward rubbing of the nose

How about SIDS - Sudden Infant Death Syndrome?

And who knows how many times people urinate and poo poo in the bed
creating prime conditions for fungal and bacterial growth

smell nice? :shock:

[size=150]so please make sure your 2nd hand mattress is heat and chemically treated
protect your family![/size]

anyway to lure the dust mite out??

I will take the risk if the mattress used by beautiful lady (minus the “activity” in bed before).

uhh…bitten by these mofo’s before, cost me an injection on my butt.

remember to inspect the mattress for “semen” stains as well
get a UV flashlight

Bro,

There is nothing wrong with selling 2nd hand mattresses though and there is also nothing wrong with ppl creating awareness on the possible consequences of using 2nd hand mattresses. We all should practice good hygiene. Don’t you think so?

Personally, I’ve spent RM30 just to ask the delivery-man of my new mattress to dump away my 3 years old mattress. Cheers!

so u like to buy diseases?

Yes, I believe selling and buying second-hand stuff is based on “as-is-where-is” basis. You buy at your own risk and no complaints entertained lah :mrgreen:
