According to the National Health Service (NHS), UK, there are three main ways by which germs can spread by clothes and towels: when you share clothes with another person, when you mix soiled clothes of varying degree while washing (cross-contamination), and when you handle them with your bare hands.
Germs come from our own body. An anonymous therapist once said: “When you feel lonely, remember there are millions of bacteria, viruses, and other germs living in your body; you mean the WORLD to them.” Jokes apart, most of these germs are harmless, but some of them are guilty of causing infections. If you have a skin problem or wound, keep your clothes extra clean. Let us tell you why.
