OTHER WAYS TO PROPERLY DISINFECT YOUR WORKOUT CLOTHES
Is Sunlight a natural sanitizing property? It is the last thing that families would think of when it comes to sanitizing clothes and school uniforms. But some say, when you hang your clothes outdoors to dry, the heat from the sun is actually killing surface bacteria as well. Some also say about 30 minutes in the sun is all you need for an extra disinfecting boost. It’s true, that it doesn’t take long for sunlight to absorb the remaining moisture in your clothes, and too much sun exposure can cause fading, so it may make sense to stick to the 30-minute mark when leaving your laundry in the sun.
