Spring Into Action With Aller-Ease + Giveaway!!
When I think about the first day of Spring, I think of planting, cleaning, organizing, and….sneezing. Yep, sniffling, sneezing, eyes that water and itch….all of these are symptoms of allergies. Allergies can leave you feeling lightheaded, tired, and overall yucky!
In my house growing up, my mom would have a “Spring Cleaning” (aka deep cleaning), once a year – usually during the Spring time. This would require moving furniture, pictures, knick-knacks, and more to get everything cleaned. While cleaning, the goal was to get the house dust free and looking nice. I don’t think anyone considered cleaning at the microscopic level.
Until recently, I had no idea that dust mites, dust mite feces, mold, spores, and pet dander collected in unprotected pillows and mattresses were triggers for allergy symptoms. This is where Aller-Ease steps in.
Aller-Ease makes the number-one selling brand of allergen protective bedding products and has teamed up with The Motherhood to ask a group of clean-thinking bloggers to Spring into Action. Bloggers will look to their past to share tried and true spring cleaning family traditions and take stock of new innovations in cleaning they simply can’t live without.
Here is a list of the bloggers participating:
Go Graham Go
The Divine Miss Mommy
A Family Completed
Plus Size Mommy
My Four Monkeys
Pretty Pink Momma
And Twins Make 5!
Tammy’s Two Cents
Icefairy’s Treasure Chest
Check back to see what they say and share your own “tried and true” spring cleaning tips passed down to you, or a must-have cleaning innovation. Share your tips and you’ll be eligible to win an Aller-Ease gift. For more ways to win Aller-Ease products visit www.aller-ease.com and enter their Spring into Action contest running through April 30. If you miss the contest, you can browse and purchase products on the Web site.
Did You Know…Mattresses can double in weight every 10 years due to microscopic allergens that accumulate inside. Zoom in under the covers to look at what’s lurking in your pillow and mattress while you sleep:
Nearly all allergists (98%) recommend protective bedding as the number-one remedy for patients suffering from indoor allergy symptoms. To learn more allergy facts visit: http://www.aller-ease.com/pdfs/mar8_10.pdf
Thanks to Aller-Ease, I had the opportunity to review some fabulous products, including pillow covers, a pillow, and a mattress cover. I like that the pillow covers and mattress cover don’t just cover the pillows and mattress. They zip around the pillows and mattress, creating an allergen filtration system between you and the bedding while you are sleeping, thus reducing allergy and asthma triggers. I will definitely be stocking up on more Aller-Ease products in the future!
