How to Control Allergens in Your Furniture and Drapes
Allersearch ADMS Dust Mite Spray
If you have
allergies, you have probably been given a list of things to do in your house to
make it allergen free. Along with removing the carpets, you were probably told
to remove all draperies, curtains, and upholstered furniture. In their place
should be hard surface blinds (either vertical or horizontal) and leather
furniture instead of fabric. Great advice if you can follow it.
aren’t in a financial position to toss out the contents of their home and

light misting of ADMS Anti-Allergen Spray to your favorite couch or chair, your
draperies, the padded seats on your dining room chairs, your curtains and
drapes. If you have fabric blinds, you can even spray them also.

Anti-Allergen Spray does is to use a combination of non-toxic alkalis and acids

reacts to the allergen.
It is not
necessary to saturate the furniture or drapes. Just a light misting once a
month will do the job. The manufacturer recommends that you vacuum after the
surface dries, but I have personally found best results by vacuuming first and
Most surfaces dry in 15 minutes or so. It is completely safe
for all water-safe fabrics. It is also not toxic to your pets or the people in
