(HealthDay News) — Allergies can hurt sleep quality, so it’s important to make sure your bedroom is as allergen-free as possible.

The National Sleep Foundation suggests:

  • Regularly wash the blankets on your bed, and wash your pillows, too. If your pillows aren’t washable, throw them in the dryer on a very hot setting.
  • Wash sheets and pillowcases each week using very hot water to kill dust mites.
  • Use an allergy-proof cover that completely contains your mattress and box spring.
  • Use an air filter.
  • Vacuum your bedroom frequently.
  • Keep windows closed if outdoor allergens bother you.
