Hi friends! As we head into the holidays there are many reasons to deep clean your house. If you’re entertaining and having family and friends over or even staying at your home, you can get a deep and meaningful clean with the BISSELL ProHeat 2X® Premier Upright Deep Cleaner with Scotchgard Protector solution. Trust me, we just cleaned our house from top to bottom with this baby and we’re so impressed with the results! But we have more than just the holidays to consider. The main reason we’ve added the BISSELL into our cleaning routine is because of my youngest’s allergies. It’s been a long year of trial and error, but based on our experiences, today we wanted to share our Tips for Fighting Childhood Allergies.
As I said, it’s been a long year. Especially for my little one. A year full of colds and sickness. It wasn’t until a few months ago that we realized after yet another trip to the doctor that there was a pattern. Our youngest has allergies. And pretty bad ones at that. We’ve been working with our pediatrician to do everything that we can to help him combat those allergies and after just a few months we’ve already noticed quite a difference. And because of that difference, I’ve been sharing our tips with so many around us dealing with the same issues! Here’s the rundown…
DAILY ALLERGY MEDS
Little ones with bad allergies should take allergy medicine – EVERYDAY. This was news to me. I have long suffered “seasonal” allergies so just during certain months do I take allergy medicine, and it’s occasional at that. I take it when I notice my eyes and throat getting itchy. But it’s easy for me to make that decision. For little ones it’s harder to tell, and it’s harder for them to tell US when they’re not feeling right. Our pediatrician says hands down, have him take an OTC allergy medicine everyday. And what kind is up to you – there are plenty of options. We’ve even tried out a few different to see what he responds best to. Every kid is different.
SALINE NASAL SPRAY
You remember that stuff you sprayed up your babies nose, then sucked the boogers out with that nose-sucker-thingy? Yah, that. Buy that spray again, even if your kids are older! Spray it in their nose every morning AND night. It cleanses their nasal passages of all the allergens that have found their way up there during the day and even overnight. And if their throat is sore, the saline helps soothe it. This one’s a game changer.
Whenever your kiddo heads out for the day, have them change their clothes when they get home or at the very least when they go to bed. We used to leave shirts on our little one sometimes even overnight, but the allergens could be all over their clothing, wreaking havoc while they’re sleeping. So now clothes that have been worn head straight to the hamper when we get home and fresh clothes are put on. A few more loads of laundry over time, but well worth the effort to keep our little one well.
DAILY WIPE DOWN
We don’t do a bath every night, but on the nights that we don’t, we still wipe down our little guy with a wet washcloth. Just his face and arms mostly, to make sure allergens aren’t hanging out. A simply addition to our nightly bedtime routine.
CLEAN FLOORS AND LINENS
Lastly, and as we alluded to at the beginning of our post, it’s important to keep our rooms free of as much dirt and dust as possible. So we have to wash those sheets and blankets, and often. Oh and DEEP CLEAN our floors. We live in sunny AZ, which means we get our fair share of the desert dust. So for us, just vacuuming doesn’t cut it. Enter the BISSELL ProHeat 2X® Premier Upright Deep Cleaner with Scotchgard Protector.
And not only does this baby get our floors CLEAN, it also works with BISSELL upright carpet cleaning formulas that include Scotchgard Protector, so as you clean your carpet you can also protect it from becoming stained in the future! This stain-protecting substance pushes liquids away from the base of carpet fibers. This means that when you have a spill, the liquid will stay at the surface longer so you have time to clean it up before the carpet is seriously damaged. So you get CLEAN and PROTECTION in one step. How awesome is that?
So if you’re in the market for a machine that can get your home holiday ready in minutes and help clean and fight allergies – the BISSELL ProHeat 2X® Premier Upright Deep Cleaner with Scotchgard Protector is for you!
