accidentally washed wad of cards with laundry

My 7-year old accidentally left a wad of Pokemon cards in his jeans when he putthem in the washing machine. The cards disintegrated and left lint and sticky residue on everything! If it were just tissue paper, I'd put the clothes in the dryer with fabric softener sheet and shake off the lint but I'm afraid to the sticky residue and coloured lint will make a permanent mess if I put it in the dryer. Any suggestions?

Shake it out.....hang to dry, shake off as much as you can and re wash......then try the dryer.
Can it be worse than several colored napkins that got mixed with some table linens?
