Tips to Get Through Allergy Season in Your Home
Summer into Autumn is when my allergies start acting up.
It’s something about the dense humidity or the pollen this time of year that just gets me every year.
It starts with sneezing and that’s followed by a runny nose and irritated eyes.
No matter what time of year your allergies get going, check out these 6 Tips to Get Through Allergy Season in Your Home to help bring you relief.
Tip #1: Remove Dried Flowers & Plants From Your Living Space
I love plants and being around them but when during allergy season, being around dried flowers, potpourri or certain house plants can really irritate my allergies.
Our family grows lavender and dries it by hanging it upside down during the Summer harvest time and would you believe I am sneezing a little more than usual during that time.
The lavender itself is not something that I am allergic to but sometimes allergies have this “cumulative” effect and that combined with certain kinds of pollen and humid weather can be too much.
If you do not want to completely get rid of your plants, just put them in a room where you are not in most of the time to limit exposure.
Tip #2: Dust, Vacuum & Clean Surfaces
Make sure you have a good vacuum that works well with good suction. I also have a broom and dustpan to go around the house with daily to get any runaway dust bunnies. It’s amazing what you can pick up on a daily basis just from regular activity. If you have kid(s) and pets, like myself, you have to be extra vigilant about this practice. Just pick a time of day, try for the same time each day, and make it a habit.
Tip #3: Use all® Free Clear Liquid Detergent to Wash Your Clothes
Pollen, dust and dirt can collect easily on your clothes. In the Summer, if I wear something once, I will wash it after. I will also wash something that I haven’t worn in a long time before wearing because I have a tendency to be sensitive to dust.
I found all® free clear liquid in the detergent and cleaning area of Stop & Shop.
Tip #4: Use an Air Conditioner
When it’s hot and humid out, pollen and other particles can hang in the air. Air conditioning can make the air easier to breathe and clear out that humidity.
Above is photo that I took of a storm that just happened, it brought a lot of wind, rain and I’m sure a lot of pollen blew around in the process.
Tip #5: Take Daily Showers (or Baths)
Believe it or not, pollen, dander, dust, dirt can collect in your hair and on your skin as you go throughout your day.
It’s good, especially, in allergy season, to take regular showers to wash off all those potential irritants.
Tip #6: Drink Lemon Water
Drinking water helps alleviate allergy symptoms and putting lemon juice or slices of lemon seems to help me a lot.
When I was pregnant with my daughter, and my allergies were really bad, my doctor told me that this is something that just seems to help.
It’s a practice that I continue to do because it’s also nice and refreshing during the Summer months.
