laundering to kill germs


The UK DoH states that domestically washed healthcare uniforms should be washed at 60 ºC for 10 minutes this is based on two literature searches and a study conducted at University College London.

“A wash for 10 minutes at 60ºC removes almost all micro-organisms. Washing with detergent at lower temperatures – down to 30ºC – eliminates MRSA and most other micro-organisms.”

(DoH, 2010)
