Our clothes and all the fabrics we touch? Did you know that the way you wash your clothes can actually make them dirtier?
Health expert, Karen Owoc, has some tips on keeping clothes free of germs – and dirt.
Coronavirus Can Thrive on Clothes
Shed your clothes if you’ve been in a high contact area and DRY CLEAN and LAUNDER them right away.
If you’re coughing into your elbow, your clothes are a carrier of germs. The fabric on your elbow will contain an infectious virus for up to a week or more!
Anyone that touches your clothing and doesn’t wash their hands can pick up your germs.
The same goes for someone that coughs or sneezes into their hand and touches your clothes
Tips to Sanitise Your Clothes
- Dry Clean or Launder new clothes before wearing them
- Coronavirus can thrive on clothes, bed linen and towels.
The Takeaway: Treat your clothes like your skin. Wash them frequently. They are a carrier of germs just like your body.
