How Often Should You Wash Your Scrub Cap? | What Temperature To Wash Your Scrub Cap
We recommend washing our Medicus Scrub Caps after each surgery or at the end of each working day.
The Best Temperature To Kill Bacteria
We take this on the same recommendations for if you had towels or sheets washed after someone was ill. We have taken this section from the recommendations from Percil.
"Towels and sheets, along with any clothes that an ill person has been wearing, should really be washed at a fairly warm temperature to kill bacteria and potential mould. A good temperature for washing towels and sheets is 40 degrees, but a 60 degree wash will be better at killing germs."
So we recommend a quick wash at 60C will be enough to make sure you kill everything along with the detergent.
