Hep C from wearing someone's clothes?

Can I get hepatitis C from wearing an infected person's clothes?

And can the infection stay in a loofa after washing it?

I'm very concerned.

Hep c infected blood must enter the blood stream of an uninfected person. It is a blood borne infection and is not transmitted by casual contact.

Per the CDC
“What are ways Hepatitis C is not spread?

Hepatitis C virus is not spread by sharing eating utensils, breastfeeding, hugging, kissing, holding hands, coughing, or sneezing. It is also not spread through food or water.@

There is no risk associated with what you have discribed so no you are not at any risk.
