Disinfecting FRC - DO
The same practices for disinfecting your clothing after a hard day of work reign true – launder items in accordance with the manufacturer's instructions. Detergent and water will disinfect clothing in the same way handwashing does for you. Stick to the basics when washing your clothing by:
- laundering with water
- using soap (laundry detergent), and
- thoroughly drying your clothing.
Thoroughly drying your clothing can also help to disinfect – once the virus is dried out, it dies. Please note, dirty laundry from a person with COVID-19 can be washed with other people’s items, as long as these washing and drying rules are followed.
Be sure to clean and disinfect clothing hampers, when possible, consider placing a bag liner in the hamper that is either disposable (can be thrown away) or can be laundered.
