Hundreds of Thousands of these microscope bugs can live in comforters and pillows in even the cleanest homes, triggering asthma attacks and eczema, and causing allergy symptoms like sneezing, coughing, and congestion. They eat skin flakes shed by people (and pets) and thrive in humid environments.

Washing you bedding weekly in hot water and then drying in a hot dryer gets rid of most mites and their feces. And encasing pillows can help by preventing new mites from moving in. For the best protection, look for allergen-impermeable bed covers made with ‘woven fabric” that has a maximum pore size of 6 micrometers or microns.
