Fight Allergies By Changing Clothes As You Walk In The Door

Fight Allergies by Changing Clothes as You Walk in the Door

For those of us who suffer from seasonal allergies, spring and summer can be miserable. A few tweaks to your daily routine can keep the outdoors from invading your home.

Apartment Therapy gives some great ideas, but one struck us particularly: change your clothes and shoes as soon as you enter your home. Leaving the clothes by the door prevents the transfer of allergens into other rooms. Don't bring these clothes into the bedroom and put them in the hamper, either — that brings allergens into the bedroom and defeats the purpose. As a chronic allergy sufferer I also shower before entering the bedroom at night for that same reason. Showering washes the irritants out of my hair so I'm less likely to transfer them to the bed.
