Default forgot whirfloc in boil, can i add it now?

so i forgot to add the whirfloc tablet into the boil. If I dissolved it and threw it in when I move to the secondary fermenter would this make any sort of difference at all? I realized I forgot to do this with last batch too and it's very cloudy not sure if all the cloudiness is owed to this missed step.

thanks!

No. IIRC, it needs the heat of the boil in order to react with the proteins.

You can always use gelatin; there are numerous articles here mentioning how to use it (never done it myself).
