How Do You Keep Allergies At Bay?

Whether allergies are just a minor inconvenience for you or a debilitating problem, home improvement weblog Apartment Therapy has some tricks to allergy-proofing your home.

The list is a pretty good mix of things you can go buy, like HEPA vacuum filters and microfibre dust mops, and simple things you can do at home right now, like making sure you don’t wear shoes in your house and keeping dust-attracting furniture out of your bedroom (where you spend most of your time at home). It’s also helpful for pointing out allergy-friendly products that are similar to the real thing, and keep your home from looking and feeling like it’s covered in plastic. Hit the link for the list, although some of you who deal with more difficult allergies may have heard it all before — so we’re curious as to what clever tricks you use to keep your home as allergy-proof as possible. Let us know in the comments!
