This can include having air purifiers and other devices that work to reduce dust and other allergens, and it can also include changing some items of your home décor.
One area that can be particularly important to tackle if you have a family with allergies is the bedding you use. Bedding can be a hotbed for attracting things like dust mites that can exacerbate allergy problems.
So how, as a mom, do you choose the right allergy-friendly bedding? Below are some tips to help you get started.
Types of Fabric
When you’re choosing bedding for people in your family with allergies, it’s vital to consider the type of fabric first and foremost.
Some fabrics are specifically designed for allergies, but even if you don’t buy an allergy-specific product, natural fibers tend to work well for children and adults with allergies. Natural fibers include cotton, linen, and wool.
Natural fibers are inherently hypo-allergenic because they are breathable and they’re naturally mold-resistant and antibacterial.
