Keeping yourself stuffed inside your home all winter long can increase some allergy symptoms and can also create clutter and a mess in the house. If you would like to give your home a good spring cleaning before spring has arrived, here are a couple tips.

When it comes to the living room, window blinds collect dust mites all winter long. To clean the blinds, soak them in a tub and clean them thoroughly, wait for them to dry and hang them back up. Also, to freshen up the carpet,  you can sprinkle baking soda and then vacuum it up after 30 minutes. Vacuuming can also get rid of dust mites for those who suffer from dust mite allergies.

Another place in your home that you may run into extra dust is the bedroom. Make sure that you wash and dry your linens in high temperatures and vacuum underneath and around furniture – to ensure that there isn't any dust bunnies hiding.

Those who have severe dust mite allergies may also want to purchase allergy free pillows and mattress covers, which can help sufferers sleep through the night.
