Know your Budget:
Before you go out and start replacing and buying new bedding, it is very important to first understand your budgetary limitations. This will help you when shopping around for allergy bedding as some items can be quite costly.
Use Dust Mite Kit:
Use a dust mite kit to determine if dust mites are the reason for your allergies associated with your bedding.
Buy new Sheets:
It is a good idea to buy brand new sheets that are able to handle being washed on a regular basis. You can find good quality sheets at almost all major department stores.
Replace your pillows if they are old and causing you problems. Also try to find appropriate pillowcase covers that limit dust mites in your bedding.
Replace your Mattress:
If you feel that your mattress might be the cause of some of your allergies or a source for dust mites then it might be a good idea to replace your mattress. Although this can be a little expensive, there are many different types of mattresses such as latex mattresses that can fit in to your budget and prevent dust mites.
Look for Synthetic Fibres:
When purchasing quilts or comforters you should always look for synthetic fibres. Try to avoid the natural down comforters that are commonly used. By using synthetic fibres, you will reduce the amount of dust mites significantly.
Buy Dust Mite Covers:
Dust mite covers are basically specially designed covers for your mattress and pillows to trap dust mites on the inside. This can significantly reduce your exposure to the mites.
Steam Clean Bedding:
If you feel that instead of spending a lot of money replacing all of your bedding, then you can always steam clean your current items. Steam cleaning helps reduce the amount of dust mites that might be lodged in your current bedding.
