Hello Everyone,

Your cozy bed is a major dust distributor. The bedding
collects skin flakes, sheds its own fibers and sends out
a puff of dust every time you roll over.

To minimize the fallout, wash sheets and pillowcases
weekly. Items that aren’t machine washable don’t need
weekly trips to the dry cleaners—just take blankets and
bedspreads outside and shake them.

You can spank some of the dust out of pillows, but for
a thorough cleaning, wash or dry-clean them. When you
change bedding, don’t whip up a dust storm. Gently roll
up the old sheets and spread out the new ones; even
clean bedding sheds fibers.

take a small chunk of your mixture and fry it in a skillet (or even
faster, microwave it for 10 to 15 seconds) and taste. Adjust
seasoning levels in the mixture accordingly.
