Are you allergic? Even if you're not it's never a good idea to walk through a cloud of fine particulates and it can irritate your eyes and nose. Here are some tips to help you deal with the dreaded pollen monster.
- Close the windows at home and in your car. If it's too warm in your house or car, run the air conditioning and set the air on "recirculate" so you're not bringing in outside air filled with pollen.
- Make sure you dust and vacuum regularly to keep the pollen that does get into your home to a minimum.
- Use saline nasal spray and "natural tears" eye drops to help wash the pollen from nasal passages and irritated eyes.
