REM (rapid eye movement) and non-REM (NREM) sleep cycles.
Sleep deprivation, chaotic sleep schedules, fever, stress, magnesium deficiency, and alcohol intoxication can trigger sleepwalking. Drugs, for example, sedative/hypnotics (drugs that promote sleep), neuroleptics (drugs used to treat psychosis), minor tranquilizers (drugs that produce a calming effect), stimulants (drugs that increase activity), and antihistamines (drugs used to treat symptoms of allergies) associated with an increased likelihood of sleepwalking. Conditions such as pregnancy and menstruation are known to increase the frequency of sleepwalking in women.

🤔 HOW IT WORKS ⁉
How detergent powder is made ?
The main raw materials required for the manufacturing of detergent powder & cake are acid slurry, soda ash, soda bicarb, sodium tripolyphosphate, soap stone, sodium silicate, sodium sulphate, synthetic dye etc.
In the blender method of making powder laundry detergent, the ingredients—surfactant, builders, antiredeposition agents, and perfumes—are simply blended together in a mixer, released onto a conveyor belt, and packaged accordingly.
The hydrocarbons used in soap generally come from plants or animals, those used in detergent can be derived from crude oil. Adding sulfuric acid to the processed hydrocarbon produces a molecule similar to the fatty acids in soap. The addition of an alkali to the mixture creates a surfactant molecule.
Note If you have no detergent at all, use one cup of borax or baking soda for a normal load. The clothing will be cleaner than you imagine.
