Clothes dryer heat was not part of the question - do washing powders kill bacteria.But you are correct. Any risk would probably come with transfer of wet clothes to the dryer.
I'm a microbiologist - you apparently are not. Risk means risk - whether small or large. I'm sure even you can think of a scenario of risk - and do spare me your amateur epidemiology.
You should have learned rik assessment in your 15 years. No sure the relvance of your claim of "sterile" (most microbiologists refer to it as aseptic) technique. p.s - Please pay attention. I did't recommend laundry disinfection in the home. However, products exist for this specific application. The methodology derives from hospital applications (http://www.epa.gov/oppad001/dis_tss_docs/dis-13.htm).
Would my comment about Howard Hughes fall into the "catty", or the "snarky", category?(Come to think of it, "Catty and Snarky" sounds like a pretty good name for a cartoon series. I better nip down to the trademark office and register it before Matt shrinks this post.)
