Green your sheets and comforters
Outside of being gentler on the environment, eco-friendly bedding offers many benefits for the allergy-sufferer.
Consisting of fibers and materials made without traditional pesticides and chemicals, bedding made of bamboo or organic cotton are great options for people with sensitive skin and sinus issues. In addition to being hypo-allergenic, eco-friendly sheets may also help to reduce your exposure to toxic chemicals typically found in fabric finishers.
“Finishers prevent wrinkling but they also contain strong chemicals one of which is formaldehyde,” says Nancy Morgan, creator of Yala Designs which designs bamboo sheets and quilts that are Azo-free dyed and certified free of harmful substances.
