Do dryer sheets repel bed bugs?

Studies have not found dryer sheets to be an effective repellent against bed bugs, as they do not contain heat or strong insecticides which are both necessary in controlling bed bug infestation. While it may be true that dryer sheets can repel some insects, they are not a specific countermeasure against bedbugs.


Bears don’t poop during hibernation.

You might wonder, “How do animals keep in their poop when they hibernate?” Before an animal goes into hibernation, they will eat a lot to sustain them until they wake. So, where does all the food go? Bears keep their food in by eating grass and twigs, creating a plug or stopper in their bowels. With this stopper, they can sleep continuously without having to poop. However, once they wake up, it all comes out. 


Long naps are best for sleep.

A good nap can help you perk up if you feel yourself lagging during the afternoon. However, it’s important not to nap for too long. A short nap can help you feel more alert and less stressed afterwards, but emphasis on the short part. The goal of the nap should be to restore energy and focus for the rest of the day.

Napping for too long or too late in the day can throw off your sleep schedule, making it harder for you to fall asleep at your normal bedtime. Not to mention, waking up after a long nap can make you feel disoriented and hazy, which is the opposite of how you should feel after a nap!
