Takeaways:

  • Researchers from Northumbria University have found that tumble drying laundry can release almost the same amount of harmful microfibres as those released during the washing cycle.
  • The use of fabric conditioners and tumble dryers could reduce these microfibres.
  • They also found that lint filters with smaller pores would trap larger masses and reduce the amount of microfibres released into the air.
