Your Dirty Laundry and Infection Control

Here is an article in Infection Control and Hospital Epidemiology on laundering scrubs at home. 

The good news: warm water (104°) with detergent was highly effective in killing MRSA and Acinetobacter. Further bacterial reduction can be achieved by ironing your scrubs.

Who has time for ironing scrubs? I prefer the dryer.

Back to work today.
