                  You've got company!
     HOW many times have you or your family awakened from a night's sleep
     with itchy skin or red and irritated eyes?
         Or how about a stuffed up nose, a barrage of sneezes, wheezing or tight chest,
     or painful head or sinus ache, a general feeling of fatigue, or even depression, all
     for no particular reason?
         The fact is that you or a member of your family could be one of the millions that
     suffer from some kind of allergy. The odds are the culprit may well be the millions
     of dust mites that have made a home for themselves in your mattress and are feeding
     on the skin flakes we shed every night. That's right! Millions of microscopic dust
     mites that have been medically proven to trigger a whole host of allergic reactions
     like asthma, bronchitis, eczema and others.
         It doesn't matter how new a mattress is, or how often you change the sheets, or
     mattress cover, or even if you take the time to vacuum it once in a while, which is
     pretty much a waste of time against these deeply embedded foes. It takes a
     clinically developed scientific and professional application to remove the enemy
     within. Such a system, the Hygienitech Mattress Cleaning system from the United
     States is now available locally from "Silent Mites". A free test on the mattress results
     in a look of amazement followed soon after by a better nights sleep. For more
