This month, I was thrilled to talk to Tulsa People Magazine about my cleaning tips for keeping allergens in check! My tips were a part of a larger story on the facts behind allergies and asthma, with expert advice from local doctors..."If you’re sneezing inside your home, allergy triggers might be present. Some of them might be coming inside the house with you..."
I didn’t have seasonal allergies issues until I moved to Oklahoma, and it sometimes feels like it’s the allergy capital of the U.S.! In fact, Oklahoma City was ranked third and Tulsa 12th on the list of most challenging cities for spring allergies from The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America. As a result, dealing with dust and pollen both inside and outside is a priority in the Bates house!
The fabulous season of fall is here, and where I live that means patio dinner, beautiful foliage, piñon wood fires in the chimenea, AND pollen and dust in outdoor cushions! Three out of four of those don't bother me. Let me cross the one negative (dust, pollen, allergens) off the list with a tip that won't leave your seat wet!
