Dust Mites: The Truth You May Not Want to Know

Dust mites are tiny, microscopic insects that live in furniture and other fabric materials, including pillows. They don’t pose any real health risk and have very little effect on most people’s lives — but there are exceptions.

If you’ve ever found yourself sneezing or getting irritated eyes after waking up in a dusty room, it could be because you have a dust mite allergy.

Some research suggests that within two years of purchase, up to one third of a pillow’s weight could be dust mites and their droppings. Disturbed yet?

Don’t panic. Replacing your pillows more often and opting for wool bedding materials can reduce this problem in your life, as well as any potential risks associated with flame retardant chemicals.
