Prevention of mite infestation of bedding by means of an impregnated sheet. A randomized controlled trial.

A randomized controlled trial was conducted to test the effect of a sheet impregnated with benzyl benzoate in preventing mite infestation of new bedding. Impregnated sheets were placed on the mattresses of 17 subjects, while 19 subjects received placebo sheets. Over the following 2 years infestation occurred more commonly, and tended to be heavier, in the beds with inactive sheets than in those with impregnated sheets; among the 27 beds with three items of new bedding sampled on four occasions, a mite count of five or more occurred significantly more often where the sheet was inactive than where it was active (11 of 13 and 5 of 14 respectively). The application of a sheet impregnated with benzyl benzoate appears to prevent mite infestation and may be useful for patients with mite allergy who obtain new bedding as part of a mite-avoidance regimen.[1]
