It’s better to put your laundry in the dryer

Not every household has the luxury of owning a dryer, sometimes there is no room for such a bulky machine, and sometimes there is no money to buy one. The only thing you can do with your laundry is to hang it on a drying rack. However, do you always do this indoors? If you do, then you should read this.

It is better not to hang laundry indoors.


Well, you don’t always have a choice, but we’re going to tell you anyway: it’s not good to hang laundry indoors. If you dry your laundry indoors, you increase the humidity by about thirty percent, according to The Asthma Society of Ireland. The higher humidity can increase the chance of developing toxic fungi. “A moist environment stimulates the growth of fungi that can release spores. These spores can potentially cause allergic reactions in humans,” according to a spokesperson for The Asthma Society.

Fungi and spores

These fungi and the spores they release are often not visible to the naked eye. As a result, a person can suddenly experience severe allergic reactions, without knowing the cause. Not everyone suffers a reaction from fungi and spores, however, people with asthma and those who are more sensitive to fungi and spores due to their condition, may experience an exacerbation of their asthma symptoms. The fungi can also have a negative effect on the skin.
