Storage Dust

Irritant: Dust mites lurking on long-stored artificial trees and decor

Remedy: Don a dust mask when unpacking decorations, and use a water-dampened cloth to wipe them down before displaying them. When it's time to put decor away, store items in airtight bins, where they'll stay dust-free for next year.
