Hurrah! The large number of sufferers is recognised!

I use my allergy as an excuse not to dust or vacuum (or get someone else to do it while I'm out of the waysmiley - winkeye).

I hate the sheet and pillow covers, as it's like sleeping in a giant crisp packet.

But switching floor coverings (to bare wood or more dense short hair carpet) has been very effective for me.

How about getting rid of the bed and sleeping straight on the wooden floor.

No, I'm joking, but we've reduced many of the carpets in our house and have these clip together wooden floors. They are less forgiving of accidents with glass or crockery though.

Not alone!

I used to curse wooden floor in my house (in UK) ( not any more smiley - winkeye) as in India we have concrete floors and it is very easy to clean. I have been thinking about carpeting but I think, need to give it a second thought!

smiley - cheers

Not alone!
