Ever since i was little, i’ve enjoyed sleeping on the floor. So, in all fairness i like the floor. I’ve slept on an old mattress for years and i really want to go back to sleeping on the floor as a full time sleeping bed, because i really need my back to fix itself. I love Japanese culture and i am really thinking of getting a Japanese futon to sleep on, but at one point i got bedbugs in my parent’s house when i still lived there.
I was never bitten, but my sister was the one who took all the biting and had to toss her bed and sleep on a hammock for 2 years until we could get her another bed after the infestation was over. It’s easily been 3 years since the infestation and i still have jars on the legs of my bed. I really do fear them, but i really want to sleep on the floor. I don’t want to go my whole life sleeping on a raised platform because of bedbugs, so any advice on how to deal with bedbugs with a japanese futon would be greatly appreciated. If anyone has experience sleeping on japanese futons and having encountered bedbugs in your life, please share. (Note: I don’t have bedbugs but in the event i end up with them down the road)
