Clothing & Coronavirus
I know one of my first question as a clothing company was, how long does coronavirus last on clothes? The answer is they don't exactly know & it varies by fabric type, but on average viruses last 4 to 48 hours on clothing. Washing clothing will destroy it, just like washing your hands.
Here are a couple of articles you may find helpful about clothing & coronavirus:
I think what we're seeing is that shopping online is likely to become the way of the future. And trying on clothes at the store probably isn't really safe. If viruses last 4-48 hours on clothes, then you could catch something from trying on clothes that someone else tried on recently.
I can also tell you that the supply & manufacturing chains for the clothing industry are significantly disrupted. And clothing manufacturers are being asked to help make masks and gowns for healthcare workers.*
So any orders for pretty clothes will take a while to fulfill. I'm happy to provide time estimates & I trust you will be patient and understanding under the circumstances. :)
I wish you and your loved ones all the best!
