Football season means allergy season, especially when your kids spend a lot of time playing outdoors and then track pollen and dust into your home. Fortunately, you can take several key steps to prevent allergies. Take a look at these four allergy prevention tips specific to football season.
Teach Your Kids to Shower Immediately After Practice
Football practice makes your kids dirty and sweaty. Don’t let them lounge on the couch, eat a snack, or do anything else until they’ve taken a shower. You don’t want pollen or dirt settling into your furniture and creating an allergy problem in your home. It also helps to have your kids leave their cleats, uniforms, and other football equipment near the door so that they don’t disperse allergens throughout your home. Create a designated place in your home to stash all this gear, preferably near the door.
