Chuck’s allergies are acting up

I feel with Chuck. Although in my case, I’m mostly allergic to dogs, cats and dust mites and a bit allergic to a few plants. Since there are no dogs or cats in my personal environment, and my other allergies (e.g. poplar trees) are rather mild, my life is almost completely unaffected. The only thing that bothers me is my dust mite allergy. After cleaning my office, for example, I sometimes have a hard time breathing when I’m lying in bed at night. After going to an allergy test, I even have a written recommendation from my doctor that “dusting should be done by third persons”, which I like to quote to my wife. Who likes to respond she’s no third person, she’s my wife.

Anyway, that’s why I’m a comic artist and don’t work as a cleaner.

    Get yourself a decent vacuum cleaner with a HEPA filter. This helps so much to keep the dust levels down. Most normal vacuum cleaners exhaust the finest dust particles and blow them high up. Being fine dus this stuff floats aroind for a long time before settling. Dusting with a good fluffy and slightly damp microfiber cloth helps to keep the dust contained too.

    I can almost manage to dust the house without getting adverse effects nowadays

    I think your wife is right.
    She should be in first place.

    Or at least second….
