I am worried about germs gathering on clothes and causing me harm. How can I protect myself?

The NHS website contains useful information about reducing the risk of germs spreading in all sorts of places.

It includes helpful information on laundering clothes too, such as:

Wash your hands after handling dirty laundry;

All underwear, towels, and household linens should be washed at 60C (140F) with a bleach-based laundry product to prevent germs from spreading;

Don’t leave laundry in the washing machine – any remaining germs can multiply rapidly.
