Wash items on a high temperature setting
Official NHS advice it that all underwear, towels and household linen should be washed at 60C (140F) or at 40C (104F) with a bleach-based laundry product to prevent germs from spreading.
If you typically wear underwear that is hand wash only, now is the time to purchase pieces that you can wash at 60C without damaging them. Equally, if you regularly wear hard-to-wash items made from delicate silks or cashmere, angora or mohair blends, consider taking these pieces out of regular wear, and instead wear alternatives that can be washed at high temperatures or with bleach-based products.
These same principles can be applied to your homewares too. Though silk pillowcases, snuggly throws and woollen blankets can be soothing during these uncertain times, if you are unable to wash these at the recommended 60C, you may wish to remove these items from your bed or sofa, and instead use them strictly as decorative accents.
