Member Q&A: How Do I Disinfect Clothing or Lingerie In My Store After Someone Tries It On? What About Bras, Wigs, Lingerie, and Clothing That Cannot Be Washed Per CDC Guidelines?
on May 29, 2020
From the CDC: Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Facility
Please refer to the manufacturer for their recommendations for sanitization.
Best Option: Launder
According to the CDC, soft surfaces should be laundered, if possible, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use the warmest appropriate water settings and dry items completely.
Second Best Option: Disinfect
If those aren’t options, you may want to consider:
Cycling through the items every 3 to 5 days
Use Moist Heat/Steamer on clothing
As always, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol before and after seeing clients.
