Creating a Healthier Home

Bedding (Sheets, Comforters, Blankets)

Eliminating dust mites from bedding materials is relatively simple. Items should be washed every 10-14 days in hot (>130 F) water. Washing in hot water kills dust mites and removes the allergen. Down filled comforters and quilts should not be used in the bedroom of a person allergic to dust mites.
