From the CDC: Cleaning and Disinfecting Your Facility

Please refer to the manufacturer for their recommendations for sanitization.  

Best Option: Launder 

  • According to the CDC, soft surfaces should be laundered, if possible, according to the manufacturer’s instructions. Use the warmest appropriate water settings and dry items completely.  

Second Best Option: Disinfect 

  • If you cannot launder the item, disinfect with an EPA-registered household disinfectant. The CDC indicates that these disinfectants meet EPA’s criteria for use against COVID-19. 

If those aren’t options, you may want to consider: 

Cycling through the items every 3 to 5 days 

Use Moist Heat/Steamer on clothing 

As always, make sure to wash your hands with soap and water for 20 seconds with soap and water or use hand sanitizer with at least 60% alcohol before and after seeing clients.
