Laundry During The COVID-19

How to Do The Laundry During The COVID-19 Pandemic?


Doing the laundry during the COVID-19 outbreak is as vital as any other steps like washing your hands thoroughly and keeping your social distance. Washing your clothes the right way could be crucial to your family’s health. Here are some simple steps to take, especially if you have someone at home who is sick or at high risk.

4 Tips on How to Prevent the Spread of COVID-19 While Doing The Laundry

1. Keep a Separate Contaminated Laundry Bin

Are you caring for someone who is sick or exposed to the virus? Their clothes are most likely contaminated. Prepare a separate laundry bin for them. Do not mix their clothing items, towels, and even linen with the rest of the family member’s laundry. This separate laundry bin helps keep the contaminated clothes until it’s ready for the wash. Keep the laundry bin clean by placing a washable liner that can be washed with the contaminate cloths. This could something simple like a spare linen.

2. Handling Soiled Items

The best way to go when handling dirty laundry of someone who is exposed to the virus is to use gloves. Use these gloves and dispose of them immediately after each use. But if this is not available to you or if you’re against single-use products you can use your bare hands and wash them thoroughly. Avoid touching your face and other surfaces throughout this process.

3. Use the Warmest Appropriate Wash & the Dryer

It’s time for laundry!

Wash contaminated clothes, towels, and linen in the warmest appropriate wash. Most times towels and linen can be washed together as they can take higher temperatures, above 40 degrees. When it comes to clothes, they generally can’t take anything more than 40 degrees. Check the labels for this information.

Use bleach is possible as it may help inactivate viral microbes on the soiled items. If your wash is all whites or light colours you can add bleach directly to the load. Otherwise, you could use a detergent that contains a colour-safe bleach. Be sure to check what is suitable for the fabric.

Once the washing is done, it’s time to dry the clothes well. Using a dryer is a better option if compared to hanging the clothes out to dry because heat also helps inactivate viral microbes. This way you don’t have to depend on the weather to get basic chores like this done.

Don’t have a dryer? It’s a good time to invest in one. Check out our washer and dryer options on The CBF Store.

An additional tip: Use white linen and white towels as you don’t have to worry about decolorization when washing in high temperatures or using bleach.

4. Disinfect All Surfaces

Once you have put the load for wash, disinfect everything in the laundry area. Clean the laundry bin, washing machine, knobs, and door handles. It is not a bad idea to go out of your way to do additional surrounding surfaces. You can use bleach or other household disinfectants.

Be sure to wash your hands now and maybe even take a shower.

FAQs

Ever wished you could just put your feet up and

  1. have high quality, brand name home appliances
  2. at the best possible prices
  3. delivered to your doorstep
  4. with good, old fashioned Aussie service and values

at just a few mouse clicks? With none of the BS – i.e. inflated prices, lousy communication, creepy salespeople etc. – in between?

That’s who The CBF Store are! A one stop, online home appliance store for good folks like yourself who know exactly what you want and how you want it. Our prices speak for themselves as we do our very best to ensure affordability and accessibility to every Australian household.

Heck if you find the very same thing priced better (or any part of our service lacking), we’d actually be upset and would love to know how we could do better!

The CBF Store is a Melbourne based company with access to some of Australia’s largest home appliance distributors/importers and extensive freight networks across all states.

We can be contacted via phone, email, the contact form further below or even via our live chat function if you fancy a yarn about an appliance or just the questionable Melbourne weather.

The short answer – no. In order for us to provide you with what we believe is the best pricing on brand name home appliances in Australia, we knew we had to do away with the bright lights, outsized commercial rents and the obligatory small army of employees. Because all that ever translates into is an overpriced appliance. And we are all about helping every possible Australian household afford something for their home.

You mean you’re still not convinced? You don’t like the sound of (an ever-growing range) of high quality brand name home appliances retailed by an Australian company (with actual Aussies on the other end of phone calls and emails), at very-hard- to-beat prices, home delivered with service the way it should be? And with professionalism and transparency at every step of the way? Tough crowd!

If you happen to reside in a postcode with a lot more country to it, please expect your item to arrive at the latter end of our stated delivery window. The freight companies may also attempt to get I touch (on your best contact number) before making the journey to safely deliver your appliance, so please be sure to answer your phone.

Delivery on a large number of our items, is free of charge, to nearly all parts of mainland Australia (Tasmania included). For certain items, delivery is free of charge to specific zones/regions only.

Competitive shipping is otherwise offered, which can either be confirmed upon checkout or contacting us for a custom quote. Please also check each item’s “Features” section for any additional shipping details.

Also there may be instances where certain remote addresses could incur some sort of an additional delivery charge. If you are ever in doubt about your location, kindly contact us at any time before making your purchase.
