Give your home the best & green­est

clean with these few tips.

Spring is in the air, so what bet­ter time to make a clean sweep of your home sweet home. Did you know that the qual­ity of in­door air can be two to five times worse than out­door air?

Make your home healthy

The good news is that a thor­ough spring clean­ing can make your home health­ier for you and your fam­ily. So throw open the windows, gather the troops and fol­low this room-by-room ap­proach to get­ting rid of the nas­ties. If any­one in your fam­ily has al­ler­gies or asthma, make de­creas­ing the dust mite pop­u­la­tion in your home a top pri­or­ity. Com­mon symp­toms in­clude nasal con­ges­tion, asthma and itchy, wa­tery eyes. Since most beds con­tain mil­lions of these mi­cro­scopic crit­ters, the bed­room is a good place to start your clean­ing.

How to get rid of dust in the bed­room

1. Flip and vac­uum the mat­tress and con­sider

get­ting a mite-proof mat­tress cover. 2. Wash all bed linen, in­clud­ing du­vets and blan­kets, in warm wa­ter us­ing the pre­soak ing cy­cle. 3. Wipe all sur­faces with a damp cloth—a dry cloth will just re­lease the dust back into the air.
