Toys and decorations are perfect dust collectors.

Children’s rooms in particular are full of little things that can be coated with dust.
Plush toys are home to millions of mites and carpets and decorative cushions accommodate twice as many unwelcome guests that make life difficult for allergy sufferers. Dust in hard-to-reach areas can be avoided, however.
The principle of omission is just as important as the right storage space. Provide for large easily wipeable and absorbent surfaces, avoid small furniture and decoration; there is also a simple solution for children’s rooms. Toys consisting of small parts should be put away in the evening, in order to prevent them collecting dust. The best place for them is a large box with a lid. Plush toys should be put in the freezer overnight, on a regular basis, and then into the washing machine. At minus 18 degrees, the mites die and during washing dead mites and especially allergenic mite excrement are removed.
The nasty little animals prefer to eat skin cells and therefore do not like it when bed linen is freshly changed on a regular basis.
