If you are one of them, it is important to ensure that environments that you can control, such as as your home, car or workplace, are adjusted to minimize your risk of exposure to substances that cause adverse reactions. The easiest way to start is to reduce environmental irritants at home.

Here are some tips to help reduce environmental irritants at home:

1. Use scent-free, chemical-free biodegradable cleaning and cosmetic products.

2. Avoid air fresheners.

3. Use organic gardening methods.

4. Use an air purifier.

5. Take shoes and jackets off and place in a closet by the front door to avoid bringing contaminants into your home.

6. Inform guests prior to their arrival that your home is a smoke-free, fragrance-free environment.

7. Eat clean and healthy foods cooked at home.

8. Vacuum regularly.

9. Wash linens regularly using scent-free chemical-free detergent.
