Never Again!! {A MUST READ}

Never again will I think about these....
(sorry to go from food to bugs but I just think you should know...)

The sad thing is, I never really thought about them much in the first place! However, yesterday Dr.Oz opened my eyes to a whole new disgusting world possibly living in my bedroom. That's right people, DUST MITES. I cannot find a video clip of what I watch on the Dr.Oz Show yesterday but oh my goodness. Talk about FREAK ME OUT! I recorded and even made hubby watch it last night. Keep in mind the picture above is an animated picture. The ones on the show were LIVE and slimy and tiny and oh gosh, I feel nauseous just thinking about it.

Yes you can beat your butt I immediately went and spent $100 on ways to protective hubby and I from these. I'm probably not done either! I of course want to provide our guests a safe bed when they come to stay. The ONLY way you can is to put your pillows and mattress in casings. They are especially made for this reasons but they help with many other issues as well. I came home with the mattress case, pillows & pillow covering by Allerease.






Here is the website if you want to read about the products.

I got them at Wal-Mart and they are known as America's #1 brand for protective bedding. Another good thing.....

If you want to watch the Dr.OZ Show on this (which I think you should) it comes on a 2nd(same episode) time at 1:35AM tomorrow morning (at least where I am). So check your local listings! It's normal time here is 2pm on NBC.

According to doctors and the Aller-Ease website "The average bed can contain up to 10 million dust mites and mattresses can double in weight every 10 years due to microscopic allergens that accumulate inside." UM REALLY!?!?!?! icky! I can't believe I could have been sleeping with these things!! EWWWWWWWWWY. I really am petrified!! I think you should consider your situation if you are in the same one!

Just a reminder "Dust mites and dust mite allergens, pet dander and pollen that hide in pillows and mattresses can't penetrate Aller-Ease Original products." ~ Aller-Ease Website

  9. yes, they are awful! I'm so glad you have mentioned this, I think everyone should get castings. I had a test done and I'm highly allergic to dust mites and it doesn't help that I can't run away from them (i.e. they are everywhere not matter how clean you are, in all beds, fabric couches, carpets, etc). I'm so glad that you are protecting yourself and your hubby!!! Make sure to wash your sheets every week in hot water (this kills them).
