Can the virus live on a textile?
No. It needs a host body to stay alive and reproduce.

For how long can the virus stay infective on textiles?
On porous surfaces like textiles the virus will die within 48 hours.

Can I get the virus from touching a textile?
Not really. To contract the virus it needs to reach mucous membranes in your mouth, nose or eyes. It means you have to pick up the virus by touching a contaminated surface and then touch your face to get infected this way.

Should I avoid touching textiles these days?
No. But you should keep washing your hands and avoid touching your face in public spaces.

How do I kill the virus?
By using regular detergents you destroy the protective fat layer of the virus. This will ultimately kill it.

Do I have to clean and disinfect a contaminated textile?
No. That might be the fastest way to make it completely safe. But you can also just leave it unused for 48 hours.

How do I clean my Svensson textile if I suspect it to be contaminated?
Wool: Dry clean.
Polyester and Trevira CS: Wash separately at 60°C.
