The fabric's super-teeny "pore size" (the gap between threads) prevents microscopic critters from burrowing into your bed and skin. These sheets feel smooth, not stiff and they're better than anything else on the market at keeping mites out.
Dyson Ball DC25 All Floors Vacuum
Suck it up. Vacuums with a HEPA (high efficiency particulate air) filter absorb the most dust and mold possible and remove close to 100 percent of the tiny granules floating through indoor air. A regular vacuum cleaner makes allergies worse because it lifts dust and spits it back into the air, says Howard Schanker, M.D., director of the Allergy Research Foundation in Los Angeles. So go for the stylish new DC25 Vacuum from Dyson ($499.99, dyson.com). It not only eats potato chip crumbs but also cleans the air, leaving behind about 150 times less mold and bacteria. Bonus: The gadget weighs only 16 pounds and makes Saturday chores feel less like a strength-training workout than the average Hoover.
