Allergies are widespread in the UK. Approximately one in four suffer with symptoms caused by allergies, with dust mites being one of the leading causes. Dust mites found in soft furnishings and bedding can trigger asthma, eczema and other allergic conditions. Charity Allergy UK recommends using allergen proof mattress and bedding covers and washing all bedding at over 60°C (the temperature that kills dust mites).
