Top Tips for Allergy Sufferers for Better Sleep

According to Allergy UK, an allergy is caused when the body’s immune system reacts to a normally harmless substance, such as pollen, food, or the house dust mite. The body identifies this substance as a threat and produces an inappropriate, exaggerated response to it.

Latest surveys and research show that allergies are on the increase, affecting up to 40% of the world’s population at some point in their lives. Considering that over a third of your life is spent in bed, we’ve devised some dustmite-busting tips to help prevent allergens and allergy symptoms that can disrupt sleep.

  • Choose bedding that can be washed at 60°C- the temperature that kills dustmites. Our Spundown range can be washed at 60°C in the comfort of your own home without losing its quality.
  • Synthetic duvets and pillows are a must if feather allergies are a problem. Silk and microfibre duvets are also a great hypoallergenic alternative to feather products.
  • Allergy sufferers will benefit from choosing anti-allergy bedding, which has been specially designed to reduce allergy symptoms effectively, resulting in a better nights’ sleep.
  • To keep dustmites at bay, put washable pillows in the machine every one to three months.
