I have been using my "spare time" to remove as many allergens from my home as possible. I have already purchased dust mite covers for my mattress and pillows and I am debating about purchasing one for my box spring. I spent a large portion of my day yesterday on cleaning all of my bed linens in hot water including the comforter, quilt, and bed skirt. I cleaned the baseboards, heating vents, ceiling fans, and the vacuum. Took everything apart and got all of the hard to reach places that I don't often get. I washed down walls, floors, ceilings, window sills and frames, door frames, pictures and anything else that I came into contact with that might have had some dust on it. I have purchased two air purifiers that are on their way. They should arrive on Tuesday. I have been reading up on Spark People on how to remove allergens from your home and I have been doing my best to make my home a safe and healthy place.
Definitely a one day at a time adventure for me. I cannot do everything at once, but I am working hard to do a little something every day.
Oh, and by the way, the scale moved another .4 of a pound down yesterday. LOL!
