Our son knows that if we go Breathe Green Charcoal Bag Review to an event and there are nuts present, we will need to leave and although this may be disappointing, this has been such a huge part of our life for so many years he has learned to handle the disappointment very well, and my husband and I make a concerted effort to make up for it later by giving him safe treats and doing fun family activities that don’t involve allergy hyper-vigilance.
You never really see how dirty a floor can be with carpet. Although carpet adds warmth and a finished look with the splash of color you may want, it hides dirt and allergens that are difficult to live with. It’s amazing how much easier it is to see dirt and hair on a hardwood floor. Your pet may need a pedicure more often or perhaps wear pet boots or shoes but along with throw rugs those are easy tasks to keep after when you are trying to eliminate allergy symptoms.
Looking at the cars parked in the neighborhood can tell you if your house windows should be left open. Living in industrial or commercial areas are especially difficult for controlling dust, whether it’s flour, corn, or quarry dust, or pollen from the trees and plants. Placing filters between you and the outdoor world is the first line of defense. Even taking an adjustable window screen and adding a plastic filter pad used in the furnace or in some vacuums will reduce the inflow of dust and can be removed and hosed off with water to clean. It’s amazing how dirty those primary filters can become. You don’t have to be in the military and wear white gloves to know it’s time to dust when you see it.
A bedroom at least is a the minimum place of safety when dealing with pet allergies. Make it a no entry zone for the household pet. Use a hair and dander mitt on cats. The moist towelette that removes dander helps as well. Dogs need to be groomed as well since they shed skin and dander even if they are short-haired. I’ve yet to see a truly hypo-allergenic pet. We all, including our pets, shed dry skin as it’s replaced.
