Look for the nice label, allergy sufferers
Do you or your family members suffer from allergies?
What if you want to buy a vacuum cleaner or a new pillow? Will it make you worse? There is only so much Claritin one can take!
The Asthma and Allergy Foundation of American (aafa.org) and Allergy Standards Limited (ASL) have hooked up to vet household items for sneeze or wheeze potential.
Don’t you love it when people do work for you? I do.
So far, 80 products have earned the seal. Just reading that a product thinks it’s hypoallergenic is not enough for these people.
Check out www.allergystandards.com/asl-blog.html to see how they decide.
I have a relative with allergies—it’s sniff sniff all day, no matter what the season. Maybe some sniff-proofing would help.
I only get sniffy when I eat ramen that has a lot of cayenne in it. I am blessed.
