How to ease winter's indoor allergies
-- Dehumidify damp areas (keep dehumidifier mold-free too!).
-- 5% bleach in water is effective to remove small areas of mold.
-- Seal cracks and openings around pipes, and repair leaks.
-- The Natural Resources Defense Council suggests dusting cracks and crevices with boric acid powder. Important: Use tight-fitting goggles, your N95 mask and rubber gloves. Then, wash off before eating anything and never touch your eyes before washing thoroughly.
