The literature on how to keep allergens out of our home placed particular emphasis on the bedroom. Not keen on taking meds, I am highly motivated to make a few changes around here. (Having a very hard time with the "shoes off at the door" suggestion though. Can't seem to make myself do it!!)
But I am doing most everything else on the suggestion list. My great aunt's hanky that I used under my little watermelon boy sculpture (wedding gift from Hubby) will go into storage. I couldn't possibly dust it, and I'm darned well NOT going to wash this delicate little thing in HOT water every week.
I already changed the sheets every week, but now every two weeks the blankets/bedspreads/coverlets have to be washed in hot. No more handmade quilts for the master bedroom--they'd never hold up to that much washing! *SIGH*
That's my dust mop by the wall...even Fly Girl doesn't recommend as much dusting as I'll be doing around here! My pesky *cough*cough*cough* is gone though, so I guess the meds are working. Presumably the bedroom haven business is helping too.
On another note, just came by a good article about stockpiling that I thought I'd share: "Pile It On: Why Stockpiling Makes Sense" by Jill Cataldo.
What I'm stockpiling lately: scent-free HE laundry detergent from the big box store. It's a "seasonal" offering, so I'll be stocking enough for the year! Any stockpiling going on over at your place? Finding any good seasonal sales??
