The biggest brands are now using a laundry service that purifies and cleans their garments before shipping.
From Gap to Nike to Uniqlo, the cleaners have a vested interest in keeping their dirty products out of the hands of people who have been exposed to the viruses.
The companies say the service, called Washing Labels, is a cost-saving measure that can save consumers up to 30 percent on clothing.
It was recently featured in a video by the National Cleaning Association, which says that “cleaner, sanitary and healthier” clothing is more than just a good look.
Washing Lables’ business model is simple.
Customers order from a list of brands, which then take their clothing to the cleaners.
When the clean-and-wear clothes arrive at the cleaners, they are checked for bacteria and viruses.
The clothes are then delivered to the customer’s home or office, where they can be washed and dried.
The cleaner uses a variety of cleaning chemicals and a chemical treatment to help keep their clothing clean, including chlorine, hydrogen peroxide, glycerin, ammonia, and water.
Washing labels also use a blend of bleach and detergent, and use a sprayer to disinfect.
The cleaner’s website says that it is “an independent, nonprofit, independent and ethical cleaning service.”
A spokesperson for Gap says that they have used Washing Labs for about two years.
The company has seen the benefit of WashingLables cleaning services, and the company said it has used them on about 70 percent of its apparel inventory.
“As a manufacturer of clothing, we believe it is important to take care of our suppliers, suppliers who supply us and our customers,” Gap spokesperson Emily O’Connor said.
“We are constantly looking for ways to improve the quality of our supply chain and we are pleased to partner with WashingLabs.com to provide our customers with a cleaner, sanitizing, and safer way to enjoy their garments.”
In an interview with Fortune magazine, Uniqllo said that they use a similar service called WASHLabs to ensure that their clothing is clean and that the washing machines are working properly.
“In some cases, we do not use washing labels because they have been shown to be inaccurate and misleading,” the company told Fortune.
“For example, one of our apparel suppliers had a complaint from a customer who was told his jacket was dirty.
The supplier had been using a bleach solution to clean his jacket, but it was shown to contain water and chlorine and was causing an increase in bacteria.
We took swift action and sent him an appropriate letter and a cleaning kit that contained chlorine and a bleach sprayer.”
WashingLabels’ business plan has been tested in the United States and Canada.
Last year, it was approved by the Food and Drug Administration.
In 2016, the company expanded to Canada.
In May, the service launched in Australia, where it has had positive reviews.
