Good time for nasal irrigation:

 

Nasal irrigation washes out allergens and mucus, and also nasal sprays.  So, before sprays and right before bedtime are good times for nasal irrigation.

vacuum cleaners

April 15, 2009

Also, the vacuum cleaner makes a big difference. Most vacuum cleaners leak air such that the sucked-un dust and any pollens gets blown around. Amazingly, this is also true with HEPA vacuum cleaners. Check consumers reports reviews. http://www.nationalallergy.com ‘s recommended vacuum cleaners are very good, but can be purchased less else where. I use Electrolux Oxygen canister. Even here, you have to be very careful on the exact model and version being purchased. Also, how you might dust makes a big difference. Allergies are cumulative, so if you allergic to pollen and minor to dust, reducing dust can help with pollen.
