Clothing & Laundry

You may find it necessary to make some adjustments to your wardrobe and laundry routine. Here are some suggestions:

  • If you find your skin is sensitive, loose fitting clothes may be more comfortable.
  • During the winter, bundle up and don’t forget a hat or cap. Avoid staying outside for long periods on a cold day.
  • Put on clean underwear and clean clothes every day after your shower.
  • Wash all new clothes before wearing them.
  • If it is necessary to use a laundromat, liquid bleach should be added to all wash loads.
