Hi, I’m Dr. Annie. Today, I’m going to show you how to do the laundry when someone in the house has a stomach bug. The reason this is important is because stomach bugs are so contagious. Viruses, like norovirus, can live for weeks on household surfaces, including the laundry. One drop of vomit or diarrhea can have a million germs. It only takes a few germs to make someone else sick. It is highly unlikely that all of the germs are going to die in a normal cycle in the washer and dryer. So, it is extremely important to be very careful with the laundry, and I’m going to show you how.
