Summer days are best spent outdoors, but if you are one of the estimated 50 million American allergy sufferers, natural beauty can become the enemy. You cannot eliminate the outdoor pollens and dust that cause allergy flares, but you can make sure that your home becomes your allergy-free haven. Here are five natural allergy remedies.
Shut out breezes
Although tempting, be sure to refrain from opening windows on days with high pollen counts. Also consider investing in a HEPA filter for your air conditioner— and remember to periodically clean it!
Each time you return home, take a minute to quickly rinse off and change your clothes. This will keep the allergens you picked up while out and about from transferring to your couch and bed.
Keeping a clean home is vital to staying allergy-free. Clean regularly with natural ingredients like vinegar or baking soda that wont irritate your nasal passages. Vacuum daily with a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter to trap allergens.
