Fall is just a few days away.  Time to get out the heavier weight duvet and pack away those summer weight blankets.  Don’t let dust  mites hitchhike on your duvet.  Protect yourself with an anti dust mite duvet cover.

Anti Dust Mite Duvet Cover for Protection

It’s easy to protect yourself from dust mites in your duvet.  Just put a zippered anti dust mite cover on your duvet and trap the allergens inside.  Once you put the cover on your duvet, dust mites, mold spores, pet allergens and other common household allergens will be trapped inside.  You can safely snuggle up with your duvet.  You can place it right next to your face and the allergens inside won’t bother you.

What to Look for When Picking a Duvet Cover

  • Polyester is warmer than cotton.  If you don’t want your duvet to make you too hot, choose all cotton or a cotton blend.
  • Dust mite duvet covers have zippers.  Some decorative duvet covers have buttons, These are not anti dust mite covers, these are merely decorative covers.  Make sure your cover has a zipper.
  • Look for easy washing.  Your anti dust mite duvet cover will need to be washed a time or two during the season,  Be sure to get a cover that can be easily washed.
Anti Dust Mite Covers Reduce Need for Washing

If you have a zippered cover on your duvet, it will keep it clean and fresh.  This results in fewer trips to the dry cleaner or laundry room to clean the duvet.  Your duvet cover not only protects you from the allergens in the duvet, it protects the duvet from you.  A zippered cover will keep body soil and sweat from touching your duvet.  This keeps it fresher and smelling clean much longer.


Snuggle up and keep warm




Ragweed Allergy Season is Here

The calendar says fall is still a few days away, but fall seasonal allergies have already started. The cool and wet summer experienced by much of the country means a strong ragweed allergy season is on tap.

Fall Seasonal Allergens

fight ragweed allergy with masks and nasal irrigation Ragweeds, goldenrods, and molds are the most common fall seasonal allergy culprits.  Fortunately, the ragweeds and goldenrods will be gone with the first few frosts. Mold can linger all winter.

Just one ragweed plant can produce one billion pollen particles and they are so small and light that the wind can carry them many miles. Goldenrods get a bad rap in the fall because they bloom at the same time as the ragweeds and the plants look similar. However, goldenrod pollen isn’t as likely to become airborne because it depends on insects for dispersal. The goldenrod pollen grains are much larger and are sticky, so they don’t get blown about the neighborhood. You can blame the goldenrods, but the ragweeds are the real problem.

Ragweeds and goldenrods can be found on the roadsides, the edges of pathways, and the perimeter of fields and forests. They will be in areas that aren’t frequently mowed. To reduce pollen exposure, drive with your windows up and avoid the areas where the ragweeds are growing.

Fight Back this Ragweed Allergy Season

If you have fall seasonal allergies, you may want to consider moving your exercise activities indoors. If the idea of running on a treadmill doesn’t excite you, then continue your jogging routine while wearing a U2SportMask or Vogmask to protect against pesky pollen particles. These masks are also great for:

  •  Walking;
  • Biking;
  • ATV trail riding; and
  • Gardening and raking leaves
Nasal Irrigation for Ragweed Allergy Control

Nasal and sinus irrigation is making a comeback as a means of natural allergy control.  As people are more interested in finding ways to control their allergies without medication, the market has responded with advanced technologies for more comfortable nasal and sinus irrigation.   Read how to get Relief from Seasonal Allergy Using Nasal Irrigation to discover more about this technique.

While the bad news is that the fall ragweed allergy season is off to an early and strong start, it won’t be long lived. Most temperate areas are expecting early frosts which will kill the ragweeds and put an end to the ragweed allergy season.
