I was recently asked to try out Bosisto’s range of Dust Mite Products. I love Bosisto’s Eucalyptus Spray and use it all the time. I use it when the kids have a cold, I use it when my son’s bedroom smells like poo. (He has an en suite and clearly has bowel issues)
So trying Bosisto’s Dust mite range actually had me excited. I know small things excite me!
My son has terrible allergies, the kind of allergies that hit at 4am in the morning. He climbs in to my bed sniffling and snotting as we fondly call it. He keeps sniffling until I threaten him back to his own room if he doesn’t stop. Tiredness gets the better of him and he falls back to sleep. I have long thought it was an issue with his bedroom or perhaps the plants outside his window. It never occurred to me it might be dust mites. Since then I have done a little research on these disgusting little bugs and let me tell you, it is nothing but GROSS.
So apart from the fact that they are gross, why are they a problem?
House dust mites can trigger respiratory or dermatological conditions including asthma and eczema. Symptoms can include:
- A tight feeling in the chest
- Runny nose
- Itchy nose
- Itchy eyes
- Itchy skin
- Skin rashes.
So is it easy to get rid of them? Well thanks to Bosisto’s range it is. You wash the washables with the laundry wash. You can use the spray on larger items such as mattresses and items that can’t be washed. Don’t be fooled though, these little things don’t just hide in your bed, they can be on any kind of furnishing, even on your curtains and in your carpet.
As soon as the package arrived I got busy.
First I sprayed all my couches. I then stripped the offending boy’s bed and sprayed up and down until it felt well coated. You leave it for several hours and then vacuum it and don’t forget the pillow too.
Because I love the smell, I carried on spraying until I was out the room and down the hall. I used the In- Laundry wash for all his bedding. You simply replace your normal liquid soap with this solution. It’s school holidays so anything that is EASY, is great right now.
I know you are probably starting to itch and scratch, just at the thought of these guys living in your house. Don’t despair I have 2 packs to give-away to two lucky Craftgossip.com readers.
