Most people spend about eight hours in bed each night, that’s a third of your day, so you obviously want to make sure your bed is not making your allergies worse. Your bed is something you have control over, so why not do everything you can to make up breathing easy? More often than not the adverse reaction to bedding by allergy sufferers is because of dust mites. There is also a buildup of humidity that is created when you sleep because of your body heat, which can cause mold and mildew inside of your mattress. In this post, we will look at three easy ways to reduce your allergy symptoms.

Protective mattress cover                                                              

Mattress covers are beneficial for everyone, not just allergy sufferers. They are affordable, waterproof, breathable, soft, and absorbent. These covers actually work to prevent bacteria and bust mites from breeding inside of your mattress. It also works to protect the mattress from spills and sweat.

Latex and memory foam pillows

There are some really great latex and memory foam pillows available that naturally protect against mold and dust mites. You should also considering getting a pillow protecting cover that goes on under your pillowcase.

Latex and memory foam mattresses

Like the pillows, memory foam and latex mattresses are the best bet for allergy sufferers. Latex mattresses in particular are great, because there have been no known cases of allergic reactions to them. They work because there are not metal components inside that give bacteria a place to hang out and there are no gaps for dust mites.
