Today we want to share with you something special:
6 Tip to Reduce Indoor Allergens
If you or someone in your household has allergies, the way you handle your clothes can greatly affect internal allergies.
Learn laundry tips that will help reduce allergens and are good practice for everyone.
Control Dust Mites to Reduce Allergies
Mites and their droppings are known allergens. And they are everywhere in our homes, where there are fabrics and fibers. Hot water and frequent washing are needed to keep the mites under control.
We spend much of the day in our room, so keeping bedding clean and dust-free is particularly important for allergy sufferers. Learn how to take care of everything from mattress protectors to pillows and duvets.
Of course, it is almost impossible to wash a mattress and springs or soft upholstered furniture. For these pieces, try a fabric allergen disinfectant cleaner. These vacuums use UV light to kill mites and bacteria and then a dual filtration system to remove 99.9% of aggressors from fabric surfaces.
Control Mold & Mildew in the Laundry Room and Your Closets
The prevention and elimination of mold and mildew are important, whether they grow in the laundry room, closet or laundry hamper. Not only can it cause respiratory problems for people with allergies and asthma, but it can also destroy walls, clothing, and shoes.
Laundry rooms can often harbor mold from a leaking washer (even a small leak) or poor air circulation. Mold doesn't take long to start growing and should be removed as soon as possible to reduce your family's exposure and prevent structural damage.
High humidity in closets or storage areas can cause mold to grow on leather shoes, bags, and clothing. Mold is attracted to dirty areas (food stains and body dirt) that stimulate growth. Follow these tips to remove mold and mildew from fabrics and leather goods.
Throwing wet clothes or towels into a basket can cause terrible sour smells and lead to mold growth. The secret to removing these odors is to get your towels really clean (use hot water!) And distilled white vinegar or baking soda to neutralize the odors.
Clean Your Washer and Dryer to Reduce Allergies
It is important to clean your washer and dryer frequently to prevent and reduce internal allergens.
Washers, especially front-loading models, can have mold and mildew on their seals and hoses. If you don't see mold (it could be behind a door seal) you will definitely smell it, and if you don't clean the washer your clothes will smell the same.
Front-loading washers need to be cleaned monthly and it is very important to limit the use of excess detergent and fabric softener that feed mold growth. Standard and high-efficiency top-loading washers also need to be cleaned regularly.
The key to preventing your clothes dryer from becoming an allergy-causing machine is to clean it regularly. Ventilated dryers extract moisture from our clothes and must send it to escape through an exterior opening.
However, if that vent is clogged, mold can grow and get worse, and a fire can start. Clean the dryer lint trap after every load and check the dryer openings frequently for your health and safety.
Ventless dryers use a compressor and collection box to retain moisture from fabrics. These boxes should be emptied frequently and cleaned to prevent mold growth.
Select Laundry Products Carefully to Reduce Allergies
By using laundry products (detergents, fabric softeners, dryers) without dyes or fragrances, you will reduce the chances of contact dermatitis, chemical sensitivity, and asthma.
You may want to eliminate commercial products and make your own laundry products and incorporate natural ingredients like distilled white vinegar and baking soda into your laundry routine.
Handle Pet Bedding Correctly to Reduce Indoor Allergies
Pet hair can cause allergy problems. Therefore, taking care of your pet's bedding and clothing, such as sweaters and jackets, is important not only for your pet's health but also for its health.
Reduce Outside Allergens by Handling Laundry Correctly
External allergens such as pollen, chemicals, and dust enter our home on clothing. Learn how to eliminate these laundry problems. One suggestion to reduce the introduction of these allergens into your home is to undress in the bathroom or garage to prevent allergens from entering the living room.
While most of us love the smell and feel of sun-dried clothes, these clothes and bedding also carry allergens during high pollen days. If you suffer from external allergens, skip the clothesline and opt for an internal drying rack or use the dryer.
