Coronavirus Tips for Safe Laundry Care:
Keep doing laundry!
Regular cleaning will prevent the spread of the disease as the virus can live on clothing for up to 3 days.
The hotter the wash, the better. Experts recommend washing items in a temperature of at least 60C.
Follow the clothing manufacturer’s instructions and use the warmest appropriate water setting.
Use the dryer. Viruses do not like heat and the dryer will further prevent the spread of the disease.
Use the right amount of soap. Too much soap creates excess suds that cause dirt (and the virus) to remain trapped inside fabric. The right amount of soap will properly clean and rinsed from the clothing.
Avoid shaking dirty laundry. This will minimize possibility of dispersing the virus through the air.
Clean and disinfect clothes hampers. Consider placing a bag liner in your hamper that is either disposable or can be laundered.
