Q: We're concerned about whether the way our mops and rags are laundered are up to Joint Commission standards. At this point, we're laundering them ourselves in bleach in our washer. The temperatures are hot, but not 160 degrees. Are these mops and rags considered "linen" and do they have to be washed up to the same standards as the rest of the linen?
