Think before buying a used mattress
I buy a lot of things used to save money. One thing however that I will not buy used is a mattress. Why do you ask? Well apart from dust mites, previous owners doing filthy things on it with or without sheets there are also bed bugs. Let me tell ya, they are not anything to sniff at. They actually bite and they are really hard to get rid of. I don't know personally, but I have seen specials on TV about them and just thinking about it makes my skin crawl. People that sell used mattresses do not even check to see if they have them or not. It is just not a good idea. You will end up spending many times what you would pay for a new mattress if you end up lucky enough to get them.
