What Kills Dust Mites?

Dust mites can be killed by placing smaller objects like rugs, pillows, stuffed animals, and such in direct sunlight for a couple of hours or placing the items in a freezer. Our beds are a breeding ground for dust mites and sheets, pillow cases, pillows, comforters, and curtains should be washed frequently in very hot water that is above 130 degrees F. There are also products available to help eliminate and control dust mites.
