Tips to disinfect your clothes


Germs are everywhere – on the surfaces, in the air and around us. Every time people cough, sneeze, shake hands, touch or spit, the likelihood of germ spread is high.

Your outfits can be one of the biggest carriers of germs. Therefore, everyone should take necessary precautions by implementing safe practices and an integral part of that is disinfection. Whirlpool of India gives simple tips on how to keep your clothes germ and allergen free:

Wash clothes with hot water

Hot water helps remove germs from the apparels. Washing in hot water at 55-60 degrees not only cleans clothes better but also helps them get rid of being potential hosts for bacteria. Washing machines with in-built heaters are beneficial and are equipped to give customized care for them with the help of various multiple hot water modes like warm, hot, allergen free, etc.

Wash apparels with chemical disinfectants

If the material is not resistant to high temperatures, chemical disinfectants can be applied. Soak and disinfect the your clothing with chlorine containing bleach. Turn them inside out to reduce the chances of abrasion.

Note: Use laundry detergent and bleach with the help of a dispenser. Chlorine bleach should never be poured directly onto clothes in a sink or washer because it can remove colour completely and dissolve the fibres. Either add the bleach to an automatic dispenser or into the washer water before adding the load of laundry.
