Pledge Catches Culprits in Dust That Cause Allergies
Date:4/28/2008

In Time for Spring, SC Johnson Shares New Findings and Tips for

Allergy-Proofing Your Home

RACINE, Wis., April 28 /PRNewswire/ -- Sneezing, sniffling, coughing and wheezing -- spring allergy season has arrived. With asthma and allergies striking one in four Americans, now is the time to start dodging those allergy triggers lurking around your home.(1) Now, just in time for warmer weather, SC Johnson reveals research that shows dusting with Pledge(R) Furniture Polish and a cloth removes up to 84 percent of allergens from dust mites and pet dander found in dust.

Dust often includes triggers such as pet dander, dust mites, cockroach droppings, molds, and pollen. In fact, it's estimated that up to 72 trillion allergens make their way into the home each day.(2) In recent studies, Pledge(R) Furniture Polish was proven more effective than dry dusting to pick up the allergens in dust without sending them into the air.

"House dust is one of the most prevalent -- and unavoidable -- allergy triggers in any home," said Dr. William E. Berger, author of Allergies and Asthma for Dummies. "Allergy-proofing inside your home is one of the most beneficial ways to reduce allergy symptoms since you can't control the allergens outside your home."

Dr. Berger offers tips to help allergy-proof your home to help reduce allergy symptoms such as sneezing, itchy eyes, and runny noses.

Clean Home, Clear Head

Go from room to room and identify spaces that can be breeding grounds for allergens:

-- Beds - Wash all bed linens in hot water (at least 130 degrees) every

two weeks. Only use pillows, blankets, quilts, and bedspreads made of

synthetic materials. Avoid down (feather) filled comforters and

pillows.

-- Climate control - Don't locate your bedroom in a humid area such as the

basement. Likewise, use an air conditioner or dehumidifier to keep the

humidity
