Okay, I HAVE THE ANSWER! SKIP TO THE LAST PART OF THE COMMENT FOR THE ANSWER.
But, let me just say to those of you who DON’T HAVE OR HAVE NEVER HAD these mysterious WHITE CRUMB-LIKE particles in your bed–just say you don’t know–BETTER YET, don’t say anything. Wasting our time with your ignorance. People who have them need answers from someone WHO KNOWS, AND WE NEED IT NOW. Whew, not that I’ve said that let me give the answer.
WHAT IS IT: Bed Bugs ( I know, I thought I was above it too)
WHAT TO DO : Go to Home Depot and buy ORTHO’S HOME DEFENSE (around 8 bucks) “Dual Action Bed Bug Killer”
DIRECTIONS: 1) Spay your bed top to bottom; 2) Spray around the base board of your bed room 3) Wait 45 minutes and repeat 1 and 2; FINALLY, two hours before you go to bed repeat 1 and 2.
If you are paranoid like I am (WAS) then spray the base board again the next morning until the product is gone.
Sleep well my friends.
This shouldnt happen if the sheets/ duvet cover are changed at least once a week and always remember to hoover the mattress at least once a month. A mattress protector helps too (they are cheap, couple of quid in primark or a pound in pound shops). mattress protectors are washable and best to replace them a couple of times a year.
I put clean bedding on my bed every Monday and Friday and always use NON bio washing powder. Check too that your washing machine is rinsing properly as it could be powder residue. Do you dry them in a drier or on the washing line or even folded on a radiator? Sometimes they just need a good flutter in the wind.
Hope this helps – poor you !!
people are dirty no matter how many showers they take and things like dust and dead skin build up over a surprisingly short period of time, they then collect and become “crumbs”
Dry skin maybe?

What our team says
why do I always feel little crumbs in my bed?
If you’ve ever had the experience of waking up in the morning to find a little bit of bedding on your pillow and a few crumbs on the sheets, you’re not alone. Lots of people have this sensation, usually when they’re asleep and their bedding has been disturbed by a pet or other person. Bed bugs can also cause this type of disturbance, so if you’re feeling crumbs and bug sightings in your bed, it’s worth checking for them.
Bed bugs can live up to a year without food
Bed bugs can live up to a year without food and will not starve, according to studies. They prefer blood but will eat other things, like proteins and carbs. Bed bugs can survive in temperatures as low as 45 degrees Fahrenheit and as high as 95 degrees Fahrenheit.
Bed bugs are attracted to carbon dioxide and heat
One of the most common questions people have about bed bugs is why does my bed seem to be constantly crawling with them? Bed bugs are attracted to carbon dioxide and heat, so if your bedroom is poorly ventilated, or you’re running a hot shower or taking a hot bath, bed bugs will be drawn to your home.
Signs you have bed bugs
If you’ve been experiencing little crumbs in your bed, or any other signs of bed bugs, it’s time to take action. Bed bugs can be a real nuisance and require professional treatment to get rid of them. Here are some tips on how to identify and get rid of these pests:
– Look for tiny, dark spots on your sheets and pillowcases. These spots may be evidence of bed bugs feeding on you.
– Check the seams of your furniture for signs of bug activity. Bed bugs can hide in small crevices, so it’s important to check everywhere.
– Examine the seams of your mattress and box spring. Bed bugs can nest in these areas and leave brownish fecal spots.
– Check the baseboards, walls, and corners of your room for signs of bed bug activity. Bed bugs like to hide in dark, secluded areas.
How to get rid of bed bugs
If you’re constantly finding little crumbs in your bed, you may have bed bugs. Bed bugs are small, reddish-brown parasites that feed on human blood. They can be difficult to see, but they leave behind a sticky residue when they crawl across surfaces.
If you think you may have bed bugs, here are some tips to get rid of them:
1) Check for signs of an infestation:
The first step is to check for signs of an infestation. Bed bugs love dark and damp areas, so look for any places where the padding on the bed is worn or thinned out, including around the edges of the mattress and under furniture. Try to use a flashlight to look for fecal droppings, which are a telltale sign that bed bugs are present.
2) Clean and dry the area:
Once you’ve identified an area as being affected by bed bugs, clean and dry the area thoroughly. This includes cleaning any cracks or crevices in the furniture and walls, as well as cleaning all surfaces that may come into contact with the bug (such as floors, lamps, bedsprings, etc.). Be sure to apply a pesticide that is specifically designed to
One of the most common questions that bed-bugs homeowners ask is “why do I always feel little crumbs in my bed?” Unfortunately, there is no one-size-fits-all answer to this question. Every person’s body and lifestyle are different, which means that some people may never experience bed bugs while others might have to battle them on a regular basis. However, there are some general tips you can follow to help reduce your chances of attracting or being bitten by bedbugs: • Keep your home clean – A clean home will reduce the number of places where bedbugs can live and multiply. Make sure to regularly vacuum your floors and treat all surfaces with an insecticide spray. • Use a bug zapper – A bug zapper emits high frequency sound waves that can kill any kind of bug including bedbugs. It’s important to keep in mind that not all bug zappers are effective at killing these pests; make sure you read the instructions carefully before using one. • Seal up cracks and crevices – Bedbugs like warm environments so it’s important to seal up any small cracks or crevices in your walls, furniture and floors where they might be able to hide
