Symptoms of Dust Mite Allergies

It amazes me that there are all these DIY remedies and essential oils for allergies.

These DIY treatments may work well, but I think the mattress and bedding are being overlooked and is the primary source for dust mites allergies.

It is essential to keep your home as dust-free as possible as dust mites can harbor in household dust too.

Dust mites love a dark, moist environment. When we shed our skin cells, which we do every night,  it supplies the dust mites with an unlimited food source.  Animals sleeping in your bed can double this food.

We also lose up to a pint of moisture every night.  This is the natural healing process of the body.   This moisture is absorbed into the cotton in the mattresses.  Shedding of the skin cells every night and losing this moisture,  sets up the perfect environment that dust mites live and thrive in.    The older the mattress, the more dust mite you have inside of your mattress. At night when your body is supposed to be rejuvenating and healing, these dust mites come out and crawl all over you — your ears, nose, eyelashes, all over your body. It could be thousands or even millions.   If you have allergies to dust mites, you will wake up feeling like you've been hit by a truck.  Night after night, this fight goes on, and you are sleep deprived and not feeling well at all. Children feel even worse.  Dust mites have been said to cause asthma triggers too.

You can do all the DIY therapies, but if you don't address the sleeping environment, you will be fighting a losing battle.

                                    Dust Mite Facts

Dust mites are tiny bugs - not insects per se, but more closely related to spiders and ticks.

Due to their tiny size, these dust mites are not visible to the naked eye. They live in bedding, couches, carpet, stuffed toys, and old clothing. Dust mites feed on the dead skin that falls off the bodies of humans and animals and on other organic material found where they live. Dust mites love warm, humid areas filled with dust. Bed pillows, mattresses, carpets, and furniture are great places for them to live. How do dust mites affect people? For most people, while they are disgusting, house dust mites are not harmful. However, the medical significance of house dust mites arises because their microscopic cast skins and feces are a major constituent of house dust that induces allergic reactions in some individuals. For those individuals, inhaling the house dust allergen triggers rhinitis allergic or bronchial asthma. Symptoms are usually respiratory (sneezing, itching, watery eyes, wheezing, etc.), but there are also reports of a red rash on the neck.  You can encase your mattress and eliminate them.

You can find dust mite relief with “Third Party Certified,” organic cotton encasements for all mattress sizes, box springs, pillows, and even encasements for your favorite duvet. By encasing your mattress, box spring, pillow, and comforter with dust mite proof bedding, you ensure that you are protected from any infestation. Even if your mattress is infested with dust mites, our barrier fabric will seal them off, ultimately killing them. *Information provided by Ecolab Pest Elimination and the National Pest Management Association, Inc.

Always remember to buy a zippered cover only. Fitted versions DO NOT protect you from the mite allergens since the mattress is not encased.  If it doesn't say encased, then it is usually fitted.  

Are you a hot sleeper?  If yes, you will love organic cotton membrane-free material. 

I recommend Organic Cotton Dust Mite Covers that have a pore size of less than 4.91. Because there is no membrane, these fabrics tend to have longer lifespans since there is no membrane to deteriorate over time in the wash. Non-membrane fabrics are also much cooler to sleep with and are much less noisy. It is more like putting a thick sheet on your mattress. Soft to the touch and cool sleeping.

                        How do I take care of allergy relief bedding?  

Allergy relief bedding does not require any special attention or cleaning agents. Allergy relief bedding can be washed with warm water and dried at a low temperature. All the fabrics can withstand temperatures of up to 250 degrees F, at which point you can sterilize the product if desired.  We recommend washing your pillow covers at least once each month while your mattress covers need to be washed every three months.

You can’t wash your mattress, but you can wash your barrier covers. Standard sizes for different mattress depths. It comes in all mattress sizes  Crib-King ~ Pillow and Duvet.
