Here’s a fact to make you squirm: there could be millions of dust mites sharing your bed tonight. Or your child’s bed, your pillow, your couch…
We can’t see them, but these microscopic critters cause havoc in allergy-prone households, triggering atopic dermatitis, asthma, sniffly red noses and watering eyes. One third of us are sensitive to them and they’re one of the most common triggers in allergic children.
Dust mites love warmer weather, so with spring just around the corner now’s the time to take action. Luckily Bosisto’s has devised a simple 3-step system to help rid your home of dust mites… naturally and with no harsh chemicals.
1. First and most important is regular washing of bedding. Beds are a dust mite’s favourite hangout; warm and moist and with lots of dead skin cells to feast on. There are many theories on how to kill mites, from freezing things to boiling them, but none is simpler (and more fragrant!) than the solution nature has provided for us.
Eucalyptus oil, in specific concentrations, has been scientifically proven to kill 99.99% of dust mites. Bosisto’s Eucalyptus Dust Mite Wash has been specifically formulated based on scientific research, with pure eucalyptus oil to kill dust mites in bedding, linen and other washables. Once a month just soak and wash on your normal cycle, no hot water required.
2. But what about in-between those monthly treatments? To keep fabrics fabulously fresh use a gentle laundry liquid with real eucalyptus oil like Bosisto's Sensitive Laundry Liquid . This will help remove allergens from bedding, linen, towels and clothes and is dermatologically tested, so it won't irritate sensitive skin. It's available at most major supermarkets.
3. Finally, there’s the items you can’t put in the washing machine. Bosisto’s Dust Mite Spray is a handy aerosol which creates a fine mist of 100% pure eucalyptus oil. It kills dust mites on soft furnishings, carpets, curtains and soft toys…no chemicals or pesticides, just pure refreshing Eucalyptus. Find Dust Mite Spray in the pest control aisle at Woolworths.
