After being outdoors during high-pollen periods, remove and wash clothing and take a shower. Shower and wash your hair every night to avoid bringing pollens into your bed. Wash your hands frequently.   Be sure to dry clothes in a clothes dryer. Line-fresh clothing may smell good, but it can be full of pollens that stick to wet or damp clothes. Use the clothes dryer instead.
