Do you suffer from allergies? Does your nose run uncontrollably at times and do you have regular sneezing fits? Do your eyes itch and sting? The problem could be in your bedroom. You might be allergic to dust mites which often set up home in sheets, mattresses and pillowcases.
These tiny bugs, which are invisible to the naked eye, feed off skin cells and other organic matter. They also absorb moisture from the atmosphere. Their dead bodies, along with their faeces, accumulate in household dust, emitting a cocktail of toxic proteins that cause allergies.
Allergies caused by dust mites vary in severity. A milder dust mite allergy typically consists of watery eyes, a runny nose and sneezing. In more severe cases, there can be prolonged and persistent sneezing, nasal congestion, coughing, skin eczema and even serious asthma attacks.
Hypoallergenic bamboo sheets
Fortunately for people who suffer from dust mite allergies - and other allergies, too - there is a hypoallergenic solution: bamboo sheets.
Bamboo bed sheets can reduce allergic reactions for a number of reasons.
First of all, they are breathable. Bamboo sheets allow body moisture and vapour to escape rapidly. This significantly reduces the availability of moisture that dust mites depend on for survival. Dust mite populations are vastly reduced as a consequence.
And bamboo sheets are also antibacterial. The moisture reducing qualities that reduce dust mite populations have the same inhibiting effect on bacterial growth. This is good news for eczema sufferers.
Aside from dust mites and bacteria, allergic reactions can also be triggered by harsh chemicals and dyes. These types of allergies often show up as respiratory or skin problems and can be avoided by using bamboo sheets made from high quality organic materials.
Say goodbye to your allergies
When you switch to organic bamboo sheets, you can sleep more soundly, knowing that your allergies will be far less likely to play up. Dust mites and bacteria will be actively discouraged from sharing your bed and you need not worry about breathing in harmful chemicals from your sheets.
