Hippy girl, thanks for the advices. I bought the vacuum yesterday we vacuumed a 1/2 a canister of dust! OMG i was so shocked. anyways, it felt better. but still, in bed i felt itchy. When i went to work, i was totally okay.
So i am freezing the bedding tonite like you suggest, and tomorrow we're gonna wash it. HOpefully it helps. Also, do you use the mattress covers?? i'm thinking about
getting it. My plan is to wash the bedding, then vacuum the mattress w/ the hepa vacuum, then put the mattress cover on..ALso, my husband noticed that he got itchy too....we also noticed that right outside our bedroom window there is a big tree...we are possibly getting allergic to the pollen. If we keep the window closed, we need probably an AC of some kind to keep the room cool.
YOu knowwhat else is interesting? my husband is now vacumming, the longer he vaccums the more dust he is sucking in. so i think sometimes we need to vaccum couple passes.
anyways will keep you updated!! i know about
calamine..i used to use it for mosquito bites!!!
ps: do you suggest a cover to cover the bed during the day?
