Laundromat Tips: Laundry Safety During Covid-19

We have some tips to help you maximize your safety to prevent the spread of COVID-19 whether doing laundry at home or at a laundromat.

Laundry Safety During Covid-19

During this ongoing global pandemic, it is safe to say that doing laundry in 2021 is far riskier than ever before. While many people still practice social distancing and wear face masks, there is still no guarantee of a 100% germ-free environment. Luckily, we have some tips to help you maximize your safety to prevent the spread of COVID-19 whether doing laundry at home or at a laundromat.

Washing Laundry at Home

  • Wash your hands before handling laundry with soap and warm water for at least 20 seconds.
  • Wear gloves after washing your hands (optional).
  • Disinfect tabletop surfaces or any common surfaces regularly.
  • Sort your clothes by color (whites, darks, colored).
  • Make sure to read the labels. Depending on the material (linen, cotton, synthetic, wool, etc.), certain fabrics have specific instructions to help avoid damages.
  • Disinfect laundry baskets after loading the washer with a disinfectant spray or wipe.
  • Wash hands after loading the washer and rinse thoroughly with soap and warm water.
  • Repeat the process for each load accordingly.

Washing Laundry at a Laundromat

  • Maintain 6 feet apart from others.

  • Always wear a face mask/covering.

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water after touching any door handles, surfaces, or equipment.

  • Wear disposable gloves (if available).

  • Disinfect the inside and outside surfaces of the washer and dryer with a disinfectant spray or wipe.

  • Wash your hands with soap and warm water after folding or handling any laundry.

  • Disinfect your laundry basket and/or hamper with a disinfectant spray or wipe.

  • If possible, prevent touching any door handles after washing your hands.
