The quest to cut down dust mites in our bedroom was a success. I woke up Monday morning without a headache and without needing to blow my nose. I hadn’t noticed these symptoms much until they were gone, but they were. Even better, I seemed better able to handle other asthma triggers the rest of the day. It was even better than the additional meds (Flonase and Spiriva) had been alone.
Today I again washed the bedclothes in hot water. I didn’t wash the comforter, but it did get a spin in the max-heat dryer, which kills dust mites as well. Yesterday I did more thorough cleaning in the living room than I had in months.
Amazing how breathing better makes all the difference.
