Don’t Let the Christmas Tree Make You Sneeze

Want to enjoy a live Christmas tree without aggravating your allergies? Try this tip from the Asthma and Allergy Foundation of America:

Wipe the trunk with a bleach solution to get rid of any mold. Use one part bleach to 20 parts lukewarm water.

If you buy a juniper or cedar tree, look for a yellowish tinge on the trunk and needles. This means the tree has been pollinating. You can use a leaf blower to remove the pollen before bringing the tree into your home.

Still worried about your allergies or asthma? Use an artificial tree instead.

Just make sure it isn’t coated with fake snow, which could aggravate your sinuses.
