Myth: Those With Allergies Can't Have Down Bedding August 31, 2018

Myth: Those With Allergies Can't Have Down Bedding, Mason, Ohio

Down bedding has long been thought of as one of the most comfortable sleeping materials. But those with allergies may be wary to invest in it due to misconceptions it will worsen their symptoms. Below, DOWNLITE, a factory direct bedding supplier, explains why everyone, including those with allergies, can enjoy this ultra-comfy bedding.

Anyone Can Enjoy Down Bedding

While it’s true that many people with allergies experience worsened symptoms when they sleep with down bedding, the down itself is actually not to blame. Low-quality bedding might be marketed as down without being pure. Manufacturers add chicken feathers and other materials to lower the cost of production. These materials might not be cleaned effectively and already contain dust mites upon purchase. When you invest in real, high-quality down products, you have a better chance of not experiencing allergic reactions. Though, these items can experience dust mite issues. 

How to Get Rid of Dust Mites

Down BeddingIn order to prevent an increase in nighttime allergic reactions or remove an existing dust mite infestation, there are several different methods you can use to clean your bedding. Carefully wash your comforter according to instructions every two weeks. Use the highest possible temperature to kill off the dust mites. If washing with hot water is inconvenient, freezing temperatures will also do the trick. After inserting your bedding into a plastic bag, place it in the freezer for a day or two. Dust mites can’t survive at this temperature so you’ll have allergy-free bedding once it comes out.
