I really hate the build up of dust and dirty fabrics. I think it stems from childhood asthma and hayfever. Given my own sensitivities I have been pretty vigilant with keeping my daughter's toys, clothes and bedding clean but I never realised that just washing bedding and soft toys in the washing machine generally doesn't kills dust mites.
I always thought I was doing the right thing and protecting my little girl against little nasties like dust mites by regularly washing her favourite Bunny and other soft toys, regularly changing her sheets and frequently washing her bedding, but I've recently found out that washing alone might not kill dust mites that can make allergies and asthma worse! Now I've started using the Bosisto's Dust Mite Wash once a month and the Bosisto’s EucoFresh Allergen Laundry Liquid for regular washing. The Bosisto's Eucalyptus Dust Mite Spray is also great for the things that aren't so easy to pop into the washing machine like mattresses, pillows and curtains.
Dust mites like to hide in all sorts of things, so it great to give the following a regular dust mite treatment:
- Soft teddies
- Blankets and Quilts
Bosisto’s EucoFresh Allergen Laundry Liquid reduces the dust mite allergens, great for sensitive skin allowing you to use in everyday washing. I also love the eucalyptus scent, I'm a bit addicted to it actually, I love the eucalyptus smell!
Dust mites are simple to control so don't let them take over your life. You can find these products in the laundry aisle of Woolworths, Coles and online at bosistos.com.au. For more information on new products visit Bosisto’s on Facebook.
