I have had athsma all of my life, so I have to be very careful about the health of my home. Avoid down. The Company Store has really cozy down-alternative duvets and pillows. Oh, and don't wash pillows. It never really works. If they are expensive, put them in a trash bag and then stick the vacuum cleaner hose in there and suck out all the air until the pillow is tiny. This removes dust mites and other allergens. I personally buy inexpensive pillows and replace them once or twice a year. Never have plants in a bedroom. They harbor molds. If you have allergies, think twice about putting fresh flowers in your room. Take every opportunity to open the windows. That's the best thing you can do for the air quality of your home.
