As I'm sure you're all well aware, I've been whining up a snot-storm about my allergies lately. This week, I found a cheap, simple product that has begun to give me my life back. If you've got pet dander, mold, dust, or pollen allergies, you need to know about this.

It's called Allersearch. It comes in the form of laundry detergent, a spray you can use on all the surfaces of your home, and in carpet shampoo. It's a natural compound that includes tannic acid, which breaks down the proteins in allergens. If you look it up on Amazon, you'll find that it has some pretty consistently amazing reviews (and all of it is cheap and available through Prime).

I sprayed it throughout my home this week, and yesterday, I could breathe again. I'm still having some allergy issues, but the difference is night and goddamn day. My home had become completely unlivable for me, and now I can be in it and not drown in post nasal drip or feel like someone has shoved mucus-corks up my nose. I slept through the night last night for the first time in weeks.

I can't believe something this simple can provide so much relief. I noticed I've been getting stuffy when I'm in my car, so I sprayed a little in there this morning. When I went to run errands this afternoon, I could breathe with no trouble in there. It's pretty goddamn astounding. I feel like standing on the roof and shouting about it.

If you've got allergies, get this now.
