Do STDs live on clothing?

How long can STDs survive on dirty clothes and underwear in the laundry basket? How long can STDs , specifically chlamydia or gonorrhea, live on a pubic hair on the bathroom floor? PLEASE answer both questions thank you so much

you have multiple questions now on the forum which is against forum rules. our read before posting post is located under the "important announcements" tab on the forum.

we call them std's for good reason - it takes naked and intimate type contact to contract them.  so far none of the questions you have asked on the forum are any risk at all for a std!!!!!

No Chlamydia and Gonorrhoeae cannot live on clothing anywhere, or a pubic hair on the floor. They are sensitive to the environment. There are no reported cases of these types of STD living outside the host.
