Hi all
 
I have a lot of allergies including pollens, grasses, animal dander, moulds, dust, etc etc.  Here in Australia we are just coming into spring and I'm having lots of allergy issues, mainly skin problems.
My GP has recommended that I don't dry my clothes, particularly underwear, outside to avoid problems with my skin.
 
As I don't like using the dryer too much, and I live in a tiny house that I'm not really keen on having clothes hanging around to dry....I was wondering if anyone knows if I hung my clothes out to dry and then finished them off or gave them a short burst, in the dryer, if that would have the same effect?
 
Any advise appreciated :-)
 
Cheers
Deb

Once pollen gets on clothes they stay until they go thru the wash cycle again. Pollen if seen under a microscope will show that it has tiny little barbs. These little barbs cling on almost anything.
