Tips for a breathable indoor environment
Here are some tips for maintaining a more breathable indoor atmosphere at home:
• Make your own cleaners: A simple mix of distilled white vinegar and water in a spray bottle will help keep chemical irritants out of the air.
• Cover your bedding: The droppings of dust mites are a common asthma trigger; using a special cover for both your mattress and pillows will prevent mites from gathering.
• Buy a better vacuum: Look for vacuums with HEPA (high-efficiency particulate air) filters.
• Ventilate: Use exhaust fans and open windows when cooking or taking a shower to prevent mold growth.
