Allergies are no fun. You can make your life easier in several ways, even when you have allergic reactions to just about everything. We know things can get frustrating, so check out our top three ways you can sleep better with allergies below.
Invest in an Air Filter
Air filters are a godsend, and this is the first thing you should buy to take the edge off your allergies during spring. It’ll take all the things that aggravate your senses out of the air, including dust, pollen from outside, and other microparticles. A high-efficiency particulate air filter (HEPA filter) is another way to keep the air in your room clean. Additionally, don’t hesitate to schedule routine inspections to determine whether pollen is coming into your house through poorly sealed windows or doors.
Get Hypoallergenic Sheets and Bedding
Hypoallergenic cotton sheets are great for people with sensitive skin. Hypoallergenic sheets keep mold spores, mildew, and dust mites at bay. This is because their tightly woven materials seriously minimize the gaps that many allergens settle into. These sheets are still breathable, though. Additionally, you’ll want to ensure your furniture and pillows are hypoallergenic. What’s the point of having hypoallergenic sheets if your pillows have dander and pollen? Changing your bedding is a great way to sleep better without allergies.
Wash Your Sheets Regularly and Clean Your Room
Even a pair of hypoallergenic sheets is no match for routine cleaning of your sheets and your bedroom once a week. If you want to add deep cleaning, you’ll want to do that once a quarter. Regularly washing them prevents them from collecting things like dead skin cells. Who wants to sleep in that? Make sure you also dust your room thoroughly while vacuuming it. Get your throw pillows, curtains, blankets, and seating as well. The best sheets have cooling properties that promote airflow during rest, so you should look for them in your local store. Overall, doing any of these things will keep you and your room allergen free.
