Most of us look forward to the summer months when we can get outside and make the most of the glorious sunshine. However, many wish they could avoid the longer days and flourishing fauna, as it brings with it the dreaded hayfever. 

Having to cope with runny noses, itchy eyes and many other unpleasant symptoms can ruin the summer, especially it makes its way indoors as well as outside, with pollen attaching itself to our clothing. This is one of the reasons that washing machine brands have developed an anti-allergy cycle. We have taken a brief look at what this special cycle can do for allergy sufferers. 

What is an anti-allergy cycle?

An anti-allergy cycle will work to remove allergens from your clothes, whether it’s pollen or dust, helping you to breathe easier and be more comfortable as you go about your day. It will also be effective on pet allergies that transfer to clothing and other irritants that you may suffer from. 

How does the anti-allergy cycle work?

An anti-allergy programme works by using hotter temperatures and extra rinses in order to remove any trace of allergens. This will help to ensure that the finished wash is extra clean and hygienic, ridding your clothing from irritants and itchy pollen, allowing you to breathe much easier. 

Will an anti-allergen cycle have the same run time?

You may find that using the anti-allergy cycle results in your washing machine running for a little longer at a higher temperature than normal. This is to make sure that all irritants have been completely removed, so that little extra time will be well worth it in the end.
