    I dont know what they meant. But you can buy allergy blocking mattress covers and those are cool. Change your pillow case like once or twice a week. Dust with baby wipes (less chemicals and traps dust), clean any fans or ceiling fans in the house; you wouldnt believe how fast they build up dust. I hope this helps!

    There are some dust mite protective pillowcases/bed covers. Maybe they meant that?

    I agree, I *think* they mean buying dust mite protective covering for your bed

    Also make sure to wash your sheets with hot water. This helps kill the dust mites! I usually try to wash my sheets once a week, which is a pain but definitely alleviates some of my symptoms
