15 Tips For Kicking Pollen In The Butt!

I dread the Spring because I know when the season comes so does the pollen. I have really bad allergies so not only does pollen make me feel miserable but it's annoying as well. Pollen gets everywhere! There's no escaping it! It gets all over our cars and houses, even our pets!!! Sometimes I don't even go outside because it's pure yellow out. That's madness!!
This season, I will not suffer!! I will be kicking pollen in the butt and if you have allergies, you should too!

Here are 15 tips for surviving the pollen this season:

  1. Wear a hat or scarf on your head when going outside. You'll decrease the chances of getting pollen in your hair. 
  2. Take a shower when you get home. Avoid getting straight in the bed or couch. Wash all of the dirt and pollen off of you first. 
  3. Don't drive with the windows down. 
  4. Invest in a purifier. This will clean the air in your home, eliminating all dust and pollen. 
  5. Do not hang your clothes or rugs outside to dry. 
  6. Keep your pets wiped down or bathed as much as possible. They will bring a lot of pollen back inside the home. 
  7. Avoid being outside during high pollen count days. The news will tell when these days are. 
  8. Avoid being outside during windy days. All of that pollen floating in the wind is a disaster! 
  9. Keep your hair washed often if you can. 
  10. Avoid opening windows in your home. That spring breeze may feel good but it'll only be bringing in pollen into your home. 
  11. If you wear contacts, try wearing your glasses more often. Pollen can get in your contacts, making your eyes feel extra itchy and irritated. 
  12. Wear a mask that can cover your nose and mouth. 
  13. Find some medication that will work for you such as Benadryl or Claritin. 
  14. Gargle salt water. It helps soothe a sore throat. 
  15. Don't wear the same clothes that you wore outside inside. If you don't want to take a shower, at least take off the clothes you had on earlier. It will contaminate everything else in the house with pollen.
