Dust Mites

Here I will refrain from putting a picture as I am sure your skin is still crawlling and itching after reading about head lice. I know mine is!Dust mites are teeny-weeny critters that live in your mattress and pillows. Gosh, how gross is that?! And, unfortunately, the older these are, the more dust mites there are.Children who suffer from asthma will find that their symptoms are worse in the presence of these horrible bugs.

The best way to get rid of them, if you can’t afford to replace the bedding, is to buy a special vaccum cleaner. These work with an Ultra Violet Light which kills the Dust Mites and the powerful vaccum sucks up the dead ones!

I bought one for my daughter when she moved into her new apartment. The mattress was fairly new (we bought new pillows) but who knew what strange creatures lurked inside. It is always better to be safe than sorry, isn’t it?

Actually they weigh so little – around 6 lbs – and are hand held, so you might think about taking them to a hotel room with you. Just a thought!
