Relieve Allergy Symptoms Naturally

Allergy suffers -- take heart! There are plenty of simple things you can do to help your itchy, watery eyes and congestion.

* When dusting, use a damp cloth. A dry cloth will just spread dust, mites and pollen around.

* Try wearing a filter mask while cleaning.

* Keep windows and doors closed as much as possible.

* Vacuum at least once a week.

* Use only bedclothes that can withstand weekly washings. Cover box springs, mattresses and pillows with plastic covers.

* Make your own natural decongestant by cutting the peels off of citrus fruits (oranges, lemons and grapefruits). Add a little honey to some boiling water and boil the peels until they are spongy. Let the peels cool, then eat one when symptoms start and another one at bedtime.
