Should we clean our clothes and shoes everytime we leave the house?

We know of novel coronavirus so far that it is most commonly transmitted among near contacts by respiratory droplets and less commonly by fomites.

No studies have been performed that explicitly examined the survival of the virus in clothing, but tests have shown that it persists in cardboard for up to 24 hours.

Although shoes often consist of similar porous material to clothes, they often also have less porous rubber and leather parts, similar to plastic that COVID-19 can live on for two to three days.What we do know is that heat could destroy the virus.

Furthermore, the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) has provided detailed instructions for treating anyone who is sick with laundry.Those include wearing gloves while handling the laundry, not shaking the laundry to prevent the virus from being dispensed through the air, and cleaning the products using the warmest water and making sure they are fully dry.
