Can I wash any of the scrubs at thermal disinfection temperatures?

Yes, the ranges that are suitable for laundering at thermal disinfection temperatures are the WonderWORK and Basic scrubs.

However, recent guidelines state that scrubs (and other medical wear) can either be washed at very hot temperatures (60+ degrees) to achieve thermal disinfection; or they can be washed at 30 degrees with a good detergent and/or antibacterial washing liquid. This is what most scrub wearers do now. It tends to be the traditional hospital laundries that rely solely on thermal disinfection.
