ECDC launches new clothes washing guidance as parents plan to send their kids back to school

Many parents are apprehensive about sending their children back to school following such a strict lockdown, in fear that their children may become infected and potentially infect those around them. With the recent news that the virus has the ability to live for up to 72 hours on some surfaces, but recent studies have shown it can survive on clothing for up to 48 hours on clothing. With this in mind what can parents do to ensure theirs children's safety and the health of those that they make contact with?

A new report from the European Centre for Disease Prevention and Control (ECDC)* offers guidance for washing clothes, including cleaning at 60-degress or more to ensure the virus is controlled. The report also suggests the use of a bleach containing Sodium Hypochlorite in your daily wash to eliminate the virus, which may be lurking on clothing

ACE for Whites is the only laundry product in the UK with bleaching agents that include Sodium Hypochlorite. This is good news for concerned parents planning to send their children back to school in June, as it offers a reassuring solution to combat the virus and one less concern as the road out of isolation keeps slowly moving.
