If you have asthma, spring cleaning can actually make you feel worse.
According to Cleveland Clinic, there are some things you can do to minimize the symptoms. First pay attention to to the cleaning products you're using.
"When you're cleaning, you have to think is the cleaner actually worse than the dirt that you're cleaning, so using natural products, using vinegar, baking soda sometimes even for furniture polish you can use olive oil", said Dr. Sumita Khatri.
It makes a big difference how the cleaner is applied too. The more particles in the air, the worse for your lungs. If you're cleaning and feel like your asthma has been triggered stop cleaning immediately.
It is important to have an 'asthma action plan' somewhere in your home like on the refrigerator.
