Allergy Tip of The Day:
Allergy Relief Tips for Wherever You Go (Part 1 of 2)
- Leave your shoes at the door. When you come in from the outside, taking your shoes off at the door lessens the amount of pollen you track into the house. Wipe down your dog’s coat before he comes into the house, too, because pollen clings to fur.
- Wash your hair before bed. If you’re a morning shampoo person, consider switching to shampooing and showering before bed instead. That way, pollen that collected on your hair during the day won’t rub off on your pillow.
- Close up the house. Open windows can be refreshing, but they let in pollen. Close windows and outside doors, especially on high-pollen days, and turn on the heat or the air-conditioning. If you must open windows, avoid sleeping with them open as the pollen is the highest early in the morning.
- Use the “recirculate” option in the car. Keep windows and sunroofs closed. Especially on high-pollen days, recirculate the air in your car instead of using the vent, which may let in pollen. Use the air conditioner and adjust the temperature to your comfort level.
