Pollen

A high pollen count outside can affect you indoors. According to the American College of Allergy, Asthma & Immunology, plants and trees disperse fine powdery pollen in early spring, late summer and into the fall. Ragweed pollen is the most common allergy culprit, along with the pollen from many common trees and grasses. To keep pollen out of your home, close windows and doors when there’s a high pollen count, use a clothes dryer rather than hang laundry on the line where it will attract pollen, and clean your air conditioning filters often. Because pollen clings to clothing, take a shower and put on a fresh outfit as soon as you come in from being outdoors on days the pollen count is high.
