Is your bedding causing your allergies?

eTradeWire News/10620991
The majority of our time is spent indoors. And while our homes have always been considered a respite from the outside world, research shows we might need to look a bit closer at our indoor environment.

NEW YORK - eTradeWire -- The human immune system produces certain antibodies that identify and treats certain substances(allergens) as harmful. When you are exposed to these allergens, the immune system goes into overdrive, causing an allergic reaction. One of the easiest says to help your immune system is to "sleep with a hypoallergenic comforter and maintain it," says Kasentex, a bedding company with OEKO-TEX Standard 100 certified products.

The most  frequent allergy symptoms caused by indoor allergens include:
  • Runny nose  
  • Sneezing
  • Itchy eyes or nose  
  • Swollen or watery eyes    

Proper and frequent washing of bed linens is the key to eliminating a large percent of the indoor allergies lurking in the bedroom - the place where we spend a good portion of every day. "We recommend washing bedding every week,'' says Kasentex.

Wash bedding on the hottest water setting (unless the laundry instructions recommend otherwise.) If your machine has a sanitize cycle, you can use that as well. Check the label on your pillow for washing instructions. Allow clean bedding to dry completely before remaking the bed.

Kasentex also recommends the following features when purchasing a new comforter set which are a staple of all their products and should be key features to help fight off allergens:
  • Vacuum Packaging - This keeps the bedding from debris and other allergens guarantees it's new
  • OEKO-TEX Standard 100 - This certification indicates the product has been tested for harmful substances and is harmless for human health
