A gentle note to all moms of eczema and allergy kids, especially those with an allergy to dust mites, don’t kill yourself over the cleaning… as advised by Prof Hugo Van Bever at sneezywheezy.com’s playgroup on Aug 24th, a thin bamboo mattress is best and sunning the pillows and mattress regularly helps to reduce dust mites.

Btw, construction dust is not dust mite as dust mite has to live around people.
