If you've got kids, you know just how
Despite being on my feet doing around-the-clock cleaning, I can never seem to get our home to that level of spotless that I'd like. While I really don't mind the endearing toys and clutter of childhood about the place, I do detest the filth, dust and the plain unhygienic. Sadly, these last points are a very big part of home life when it comes to raising kids.
Take our master bedroom for instance. Strictly a sanctuary for the adults? Not in our home! Kids and their mess find a way into our space daily. Constantly I find my children on our bed watching television, jumping on the mattress, eating where they are forbidden and playing.
What really bothers me most, is the dust the kids stir up in our room during the course of their play. I vacuum our home daily to keep it all under control, but my tendency to sneeze frequently around this house of ours, it a real cause of irritation to me. It's proof that I am losing a very big battle!
It didn't take me long to work out that the dust in our home is a large part of what is causing me to experience this allergic reaction, particularly in my own bed. (It's a public area after all.)
Under the circumstances, I was very enthusiastic to try out the Bosisto's Dust Mite and Allergen range when the opportunity arose.
The Bosisto's Dust Mite Control range is designed to help control the level of dust mites and their allergens in your home. With a family of eight, it's just what we needed to get the more public areas of our home, really clean. (Bedding, cushions, throws, linens, towels...)
The Bosisto's range is created using natural eucalyptus oil which has been proven to kill 99.9% of dust mites and remove their allergens. There are no harmful chemicals added and the products are kind on sensitive skins.
Research has shown that 80% of Australians suffering from asthma and allergies, are allergic to dust mites. Dust mites are household microscopic insects that live within every home, especially mattresses, furnishings, bedding and even within your children's soft toys. Dust mites feed on fallen skin cells from humans and pets and their droppings are what cause allergies and asthma in sensitive individuals. (Eww. I know!)
Treating the problem has never been easier with the three-part Bosisto's range.
For treating beds, simply remove all bedding and spray the Bosisto's Eucalyptus Dust Mite Spray directly onto your mattress. You can also treat your other household furnishings, toys and pet beds with the spray. Allow the spray to work for one to two hours before vacuuming the treated areas.
Super-treat your bedding and other washables monthly with the Bosisto's Eucalyptus Dust Mite Wash. Simply soak your items for one hour in your washing machine (no other detergent required) before running your regular wash to kill the dust mites in your bedding.
To keep the dust mite problem under control in an on-going basis, use the Bosisto's Allergen Laundry Liquid to maintain a new level of cleanliness. This product is suitable for front and top loaders, is garden safe and very kind on sensitive skins. Each 500ml bottle contains around 20 washes.
This product has a fresh and pleasant eucalyptus scent and it's a must-have in our home now. Our linen feels extra crispy and smells very fresh after using this.
Since washing our bedding with these products over the last few months, I have genuinely noticed an immediate improvement with the sniffles and sneezing after each wash. Even our toddler daughter has had a reduction in eczema break-outs. I am quite convinced this has been due these products, used on a regular basis, that have made the difference for us.
While the products are not going to keep my own little human mites from destroying my bedroom daily, they will help to reduce the microscopic mess they are regularly leaving behind.
You can purchase the Bosisto's range directly from their online store. You can also buy the Bosisto's Dust Mite range from major supermarkets in the laundry aisle. Bosisto's Dust Mite Wash is available at Coles supermarkets. The Bosisto's Dust Mite Spray and Allergen Wash are available at Woolworths.
Have you tried Bosisto's products before?
Does your bedding make you sneeze?
Is your bed an indoor trampoline also?
