PROVIDENCE, R.I., May 21 April showers bring May flowers,and May flowers bring...sneezes?

For those allergy sufferers out there, May is often viewed with mixedemotions. While the end of cold weather and snow is certainly welcomed, it isoften coupled with the inevitable bouts of sneezing, watery eyes and allergymedication haze. May is National Asthma and Allergy Awareness Month andCleanBrands, creators of The World's Cleanest Pillow, believes that, with afew small changes, you can help alleviate allergy symptoms without swallowinga single pill.

"The inspiration for our products was really just a parent's concern forthe health of their child," said Gary Goldberg, founder and Chief InnovationOfficer of CleanBrands, the makers of CleanRest(R). "When we were told thatthe cause of my oldest child's breathing problems was most likely indoorallergens, I set out to build the proverbial 'better mousetrap.'"

Along with seasonal allergies, many people - about 20 million Americans -suffer from what is called "indoor allergies." The major trigger of indoorallergies is the common dust mite, a microscopic creature measuring onequarter of a millimeter. Dust mites have no developed respiratory system andno eyes, and spend their lives eating, reproducing and eliminating wasteproducts. It is their waste products, not the mites themselves, which causeallergic reactions.

While having dust mites does not mean your house isn't clean, keeping yourhouse as allergen-free as possible can improve your indoor air quality. TheAsthma and Allergy Foundation of America (AAFA) believes that controlling theair quality in your home, office, school and car can reduce allergy and asthmatriggers which includes controlling cockroaches, avoiding mold spores,preventing entry of pollen by keeping windows and doors closed, preventinganimal dander, vacuuming one or twice a week, and controlling dust mites.

According to AAFA, a leading method to control dust mites is to putzippered allergen impermeable encasements on all pillows, mattresses and boxsprings.

CleanBrands is an industry leading innovator that creates and developsproducts devoted to improving the health of the sleep environment. Theirdoctor-recommended pillows, pillow cases, mattress encasements and box springencasements feature MicronOne(TM) technology, creating a barrier against dustmites, mold spores and micro-toxins that can interfere with a healthy night'srest.

Spring is here, so get out and smell those flowers!
