If we are allergic, wearing them also outside, we are less affected by the proliferation of pollen. Okay, it will still be a small consolation, but allergy sufferers know very well what we are referring to. Indeed, according to the latest statistics, more than 30% of Italians are suffering from various types of allergies. With the percentages constantly increasing.

This, we repeat, especially for those, but there are many, who suffer from seasonal allergies. Any detergent, by its nature, chemically reduces germs and bacteria during washing. It reduces, but it does not eliminate. Beware of the difference. Especially when we do a delicate cycle, such as cotton, which usually does not exceed 60 °.

Therefore, if we want to completely eliminate the bacterial presence in the washing and we cannot do it through the temperature, we can still use the so-called “sanitizing additives”. They are products that we are going to put as a supplement to the detergent, but without bleach, developed specifically to eliminate any trace of mites. In most cases, just to ensure total effectiveness, we must add them to the last rinse of the washing cycle. At least, in this way, we will have the certainty of preserving the health of those who suffer from allergies at home.
