Cleaning Tips For Allergy Sufferers

Allergy problems can be a year round headache, quite literally, for millions of people. There are things you can do to relieve the situation and feel and breath better.

Vacuum and dry-clean draperies. If possible, purchase draperies that can be machine washed to keep them clean and allergy free.

Comb pets frequently. Keep them inside if possible. Pet dander is a serious allergy problem for many people.

Vacuum furniture to remove dust mites. Even better, cover them with cloth slipcovers that can be washed regularly.

Mildew can grow in your refrigerator leading to allergy problems. To prevent this, wipe down the inside with vinegar. The acid in vinegar kills mildew fungus.

Place large doormats at all entries to your home or office. This reduces the amount of dust and debris that can be "walked" in.

Toss old newspapers, they become dust collectors.

Wipe clean your air conditioner's vents and clean the filters monthly, even weekly if you are having problems.
