WHO KNEW? Easy Trick For Dust Mites!

If you have a child with asthma or allergies, keeping dust mites at bay is a good thing to do. Even if your little one is allergy-free, you still don’t need those nasties hanging around. What are they? Dust mites are microscopic creatures that live and breed in your bedding.

We’re not talking 10 or 20 here, they are present in the millions and cause allergies for many people, kids included. One of the most common places for them to accumulate is in your bedding. They feed off the millions of dead skin cells that we shed while we sleep. You probably didn’t realize that you were providing those little suckers with a 24/7 all-you-can-eat restaurant, did you?

So what can you do? You can encase your mattress in a special cover and that will help a lot. But there is a super-simple, absolutely free way to eliminate them from your pillow. Just stick it in the freezer for 12 hours and you can say goodbye to those bugs. Gotta love that!
