Chemical disinfection, mixing times, best practice, essential quality requirements – when it comes to running a laundry room in a care home, hospital or clinic, following the guidance set out in the Department of Health’s HTM 01-04 can at times feel daunting.

The first step you can take towards compliance is to create a laundry room with separate pathways for soiled and disinfected laundry – and we’ll show you how to set it all up with a minimum amount of effort.
