When clothes, bags, masks and some other fabrics are contaminated with bacteria, it is difficult for us to recognize with the naked eye. Currently, there is no clear study on the duration of the virus on the surface of the fabric. Therefore, regular cleaning and disinfection of these objects is necessary, especially during epidemics. Here are 7 fabrics that are used a lot but may not be disinfected properly.

Backpacks and bags are essential items that we carry every day. Therefore, when placed in public places, they easily accumulate bacteria. Due to the special structure with many accessories, backpacks, bags are very difficult to wash. Not to mention many materials, if you do not know how to wash them, will cause backpacks and bags to reduce their service life.

Sunscreen is often worn outside of clothes, shielding the user when going out. Sunscreen is in direct contact with dirt, bacteria and even droplets. If you have to go out often, washing and drying sunscreen a lot is impossible.

Hats / hats worn every day are also easy to get dirty. On hot days, the hat is easy to get wet with sweat. This is a favorable environment for the production of many bacteria. However, after each use, many people hang their hats instead of carrying them to the toilet. The design of the hats also makes it difficult to clean and machine wash, so many people are afraid to clean them every day.

Normally, jeans make us feel dirty, less affected by sweat. Not only that, the regular washing of jeans causes the fabric to stretch. Therefore, many people have the habit of hanging up to continue wearing, not washing immediately after the first wear.

In addition, users also feel that the shawl is less dirty, so it is not cleaned regularly. This accessory is also made of some materials such as wool, silk… that need to be taken care of.

Stuffed animals have a detailed surface and a structure containing many sponges, so cleaning teddy bears takes a long time. Not to mention the long drying time also creates conditions for bacteria and mold to multiply. Therefore, it is very difficult to clean stuffed animals every day.

Blankets and pillows come into contact with the human body every day and are also dusty items that are difficult to detect. Washing pillows and blankets takes a lot of water and effort, and the drying time is long, so it’s impossible to wash them every day.
