Stuffed toys

Well, itís not a secret that stuffed toys are the ideal environment for dust mites, right? If you have pets or kids, try to buy stuffed toys that can be washed and do this with hot water at least once a week.

If they canít be washed, then put them in a freezer bag in the freezer for three to five hours – but this method will help you get rid of the dust mites, not allergens per se.

In addition, medical experts recommend removing stuffed toys from children with asthma and allergies. So, try to choose toys that are asthma and allergy friendly.

If you or your family members are allergic to something that may be in your house, just try your best to get rid of those allergens, because they can trigger your asthma symptoms. ďThese changes are tremendously important,Ē said Raymond Casciari, M.D., a pulmonologist at St. Joseph Hospital in Orange, California.
