Hypoallergenic bedding Australia- Is there a better choice?

For hypoallergenic bedding Australia.  Most people spend an average of 7 hours in bed per night.  We think a Lujo Home Bamboo sheet set or a Mulberry Silk pillowcase are a better choice.  Regular bedding can attract many allergens, such as dust, mold, dander, and dust mites. If you have an allergy to any of these, dealing with them can be a battle.

The best first step is to look for some good quality hypoallergenic bedding Australia. Hypoallergenic bedding is made from materials that repel allergens such as dust and mould.  Less hypoallergenic materials and bedding is more likely to attract these allergens. Different types of allergens thrive in different locations and will need to be dealt with appropriately. Dust mites will usually be found in pillows, sheets and quilts for example.
