The Panel with Tim Watkin and Liz Bowen-Clewley (Part 2)

From Jesse Mulligan, 1–4pm, 4:33 pm on 22 August 2013

Topics - Could your washing be making you sick? The answer is yes, if you mix your underwear with your tea towels. Research in the UK found low temperature washing cycles and "soft" washing detergents, breed bacteria which creates a "bacterial soup", transfering bacteria from underwear to tea towels. The amount of overtime being worked in this country has increased by 27 percent, with almost half (48%) of that going unpaid.
