Working Out at the Gym (Towels) - Laundry

  1. I work out in the gym several days a week. What do I do with my dirty towel?
    If this is a hospital towel, you should deposit it into a hospital laundry bag. If it's an institutional towel and the laundry workers know that some of the towels come from recently vaccinated people, you may deposit it in the institutional laundry bag. If this is your personal towel from home, place this towel into a plastic bag and bring it home for routine laundering (separate from other family members clothing and linens) in hot soapy water.
