Allergies
 
You don't have to suffer with allergies or intolerence to allergens! The best defence is offense so follow the recommendations below to ease your symptoms.




Adjust the air conditioning
Optimum temperature is 70°F during the day and 65°F at night. Setting an air conditioner on superfreeze may aggravate allergy symptoms. Optimum humidity is 40 to 50 percent.
Spray tannic acid on your carpet
Tannic acid is a compound found in tea, coffee and cocoa. Researchers have found it can chemically alter dust-mite antigens so they don't cause allergic reactions.
Wash your bedding and linens in hot water every week
Dust mites don't drown in the washer, and studies have shown that cool-water washes have no adverse effect on them. Hot water, on the other hand, can wipe them out.
Wipe out mould
Periodically, take a few minutes and a bucket of bleach mixed with water to clean bathrooms, basements, leaky windows, water vaporizers, humidifiers and hot-air systems. The bleach instantly kills mould.
Discard old, mouldy or mildewed books
Even "clean" books should be kept in a glass-enclosed cabinet say experts.
Clean drip pans under refrigerators and freezers
To keep mould to a minimum wipedown with bleach and consider adding a fresh chlorine tablet to the pan.
Wash your hands
Eye symptoms in allergy sufferers can be reduced by washing hands after handling pets, foods and other problem substances.
Remove pets from the bedroom
People spend most of their time at home in the bedroom. Cut your exposure to pet allergens by preventing your pet from visiting you in rooms where you spend a lot of time.
Wear a mask
If you mow the lawn, wear a mouth and nose mask to help reduce particulate exposure.
Wash off pollen
If you're covered with pollen even antihistamines won't help, so try partially washing yourself down with a hose. Make sure to shampoo your hair - it acts like a net, capturing windblown pollen.
