Is washing workwear at home really a viable alternative to industrial washing?

A new ETSA communication on the risk of washing workwear at home will be published shortly. Based on data from the consumer behavior study, it highlights the risks to business if employers allow their employees to wash their own workwear. These risks range from a lack of hygiene through the introduction of bacteria in a sterile work environment, to cross contamination of personal clothes. Consumers' habits when sorting, washing, drying, storing and transporting workwear highlight a lack of awareness of these dangers. Textile services is a safer alternative.
