Minimizing Dust Mites

Minimizing Dust Mites

These tiny organisms are found in mattresses and bedding and can cause itching, sneezing, runny noses, skin rashes and more – all of which disrupt peaceful sleep. Dust mites are legion and can’t be completely eradicated, but a few sensible strategies can minimize them. Fighting moisture in the bed by using organic wool elements in mattresses and bedding can help, as can using wood frame or wicker chairs, as opposed to upholstered furniture. Other useful suggestions are keeping most clutter and unnecessary items out of the bedroom, keeping surfaces dust-free, washing bedding often in hot water and hanging out to dry on a sunny day and avoiding wall-to-wall carpeting.

You may also try a natural dust mite cleansing spray made from Neem oil. The spray is applied to mattresses, pillows and upholstery and re-applied after 4-6 weeks. This treatment effectively removes dust mite infestation for up to a year.
