The best cure for dust mites is the sun. Kills em.

Big open windows are needed for the bedrooms and, if hot available, then on a nice clear, hot day, strip the beds and leave the matteresses them selves on the lawn for a few hours.

Reall old fashioned idea!

I've only had a proper washing machine for a few years, before that I had a twin tub, they are more reliable than washing machines, it lasted me for years.
Before that though I had this washer that you put on your draining board that you filled by hand and then turned the dial that lasted 2 minutes! - if you wanted it hot it meant boiling kettles. Okay for someone on their own but not for families, but found using cold water didn't make any difference to using hot.
