Indoor laundry drying 'poses a health risk'
Drying laundry in the home poses a health risk to those prone to asthma, hay fever and other allergies, according to new research.
A study carried out by the Mackintosh School of Architecture found that many homes had too much moisture indoors. Up to a third of this moisture was attributed to drying laundry.
The researchers have called on housebuilders to build dedicated drying areas into new housing to address the health concerns.
