Health Tip: Rid Your Bedroom of Allergens
They can interfere with sleep

By Diana Kohnle

(HealthDay News) -- Sneezing and sniffling triggered by allergies can prevent a good night's sleep.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests how to rid your bedroom of allergens:

  • If you're allergic to pets, keep them out of the bedroom. Bathe pets weekly.
  • Cover your mattress and pillows in dust mite covers, and wash sheets regularly in hot water. Opt for blankets made of synthetic materials, not wool.
  • Limit mold by keeping windows open in the bathroom. Fix leaks and clean up water promptly. If you do have a moldy area, hire a professional to clean it.
  • Skip candles, scented laundry detergent, air fresheners and other heavy fragrances in your bedroom.
  • Clean furnace, air conditioner and vacuum filters regularly.
