How to dry your textiles during allergy season
Pollen and exhaust fumes outside, dust and humidity inside. Drying clothes allergy-free can be challenging, but there’s a simple solution!
The drying cabinet – the most hypoallergenic and sustainable option, both indoors and outdoors.
Keep pollen and exhaust gases out
Today, more than 30 percent of the Swedish population has some form of intolerance to pollen, which makes it one of the most common allergies in the country. During the period May-August, we also enter the most intensive allergy period which results in outdoor environments being constant challenges for many people with allergy problems.
When clothes, bedding, carpets and other textiles are hung to dry outdoors, we not only risk catching some of the hundreds of thousands of pollen grains, but also affect our entire indoor environment.
Protects from dust and maintains indoor air quality
Although many choose to avoid pollen emissions by drying indoors, there are also other risks to consider for allergy sufferers. Skin, dust particles and hair loss from pets combined with inadequate ventilation are just a few factors that contribute to our indoor environment being many times worse than outdoors.
By drying clothes and other textiles indoors you risk, among other things, air quality deterioration since each batch of freshly washed textiles can contain upwards of several litres of water, which can lead to increased humidity, which in turn can result in mould, bacterial growth and mites which are the breeding ground for further allergic reactions.
Thanks to the drying cabinet you can avoid all these problems, if you hang your laundry in the dryer, you ensure that exhaust gases, pollen and other air pollutants are all excluded.
