We spend a third of our lives sleeping, so let's make sure it’s on a clean bed. Common allergens like dust mites can cause reactions like sneezing and skin rash, which can lead to serious illnesses like asthma, eczema and rhinitis.

Practice good hygiene to get rid of the dust and dirt on your bed, by using these tips.

Sun your sheets
Sun your pillow, mattresses and duvet regularly as UV rays kill bacteria and dust mites.

Replace your pillows
Change them every one to two years.

Wash the dirt away
Wash your bedlinen and mattress protectors in hot water (above 60 deg C) to kill dust mites.

No Liquids
Do not use liquid- or moisture-based cleaning methods on your mattress without consulting professionals. These might damage it and introduce unwanted moisture.

Get extra help
Once a year, consider getting your mattress cleaned by a professional company like De Hygienique (Asia), which uses the potema mattress cleaning system. This 100 per cent dry extraction, chemical- free method will remove allergens without leaving a chemical residue. Prices range from $12 for a baby cot to $58 for a European King-size mattress.
