Summer allergy season is in full swing. If you're not the one sneezing and having itchy eyes then you know someone who's suffering from these symptoms.
The next everyday allergy culprits are cute and cuddly but are no friend to the allergy sufferer - stuffed animals. Furry toys should be treated just like pillows - washed in hot water once a month.
Long haired rugs are another place where allergens, especially animal hair and dander, lock in and wreak havoc on allergies. These should be vacuumed with a vacuum cleaner that has a HEPA filter which will trap the allergens in its filter.
