- Wash bedding often and in hot water that is at least 130 degrees.
- Replace fleecy, fluffy, dust-trapping fabrics with hard finishes such as leather upholstery; use a shower curtain made of plastic, rather than fabric; choose hard-surface floors or carpet with a very tight weave; replace plush curtains with aluminum or vinyl blinds.
- In supermarkets, choose from among the reasonably priced cleaning products that are unscented or nonallergenic. They include not just soaps and sprays but also cleaning cloths and disposable dust catchers.
