I saw this on Dr. Oz today. I felt like I needed to share it and get some of the grossness out of my system. The show was on dirty things in your house that you didn't know existed. They got to the bed room and the dirtiest part was the pillow and the mattress. This really didn't surprise me very much. The next statement did. Dr. Oz said that your mattress doubles in weight in 10 years because of the dead bug parts, dead skin, and body secretions that it absorbs. Yuck! I've had my mattress since before Dan and I were married. Thats been at LEAST 6 years. Blah. Also, remote controls evidently have a large amount of feces residue on it and you need to spray it down with some sort of bleach spray every now and again so you don't get sick and die. This is gross. I could totally be a germaphobe if I let myself think about it for too long. Yuck, yuck, gross!

Hmmmm....so glad I checked your blog for the day! HaHa! I think sometimes life is much happier in ignorance! At least in this case! But glad to know Dr. Oz is still grossing people out! Love ya! Aunt Mariann
