With regard to cleaning garments from the general public, there is no need to take any special precautions at this time. The CDC advises that the dry cleaning process, which includes cleaning and pressing, is effective on most viruses. As is true with other viruses, laundering in hot water, 160 degrees F and with chlorine bleach is the most effective method for sanitizing laundry. If hot water and chlorine bleach are not safe for the items then laundering with a disinfectant product is an option. The CDC states the laundering with detergent alone is an effective method.


At Munros, our standard procedure has always been and always will be to disinfect laundry. We utilize workplace safety standards that include prevention of cross contamination for clean and soiled laundry. We employ specially formulated commercial detergents along with chlorine bleach that are designed for sanitation and sterilization of garments and linens. These sanitation formulas, combined with the 160 degrees (or higher) wash water combined with the high heat drying and/or steaming, are effective sanitation, as stated above.


General standard hygienic procedures are highly recommended at this time. The risk when transporting and cleaning linen from the general public is considered very small at this point.
