Should I cover the beds in plastic when leaving my house in Florida for the summer?

IMO probably not. I'm thinking that covering beds in plastic would allow moisture (from that humid air) to gather under the plastic on the beds and the plastic would keep the moisture from evaporating. I think you'd come back to a mildewed, maybe moldy soggy smelly mess that way.

I would put the bottom sheet on and then when you come back, you can just wash the sheet. As the previous poster said, you probably want the mattress to "breathe" and a sheet on top would catch all the dust and be easy to wash.

I sprayed down the sheets and pillows on the bed with lysol and left them on the bed. When I came back I would take the old off and wash and put on fresh sheets. Not sure if this is one way to do this but it did help with my OCD....LOL

Put a tablespoon or so of mineral oil into the toilet bowl to impede evaporation before covering with saran wrap.
