Place all contaminated items in a plastic bag and seal it before putting it in the washing machine. Be sure to wash your hands thoroughly after handling any contaminated items.
Step Two - Disinfect all contaminated areas
Before cleaning up the property, it's important that, if there is suspicion of fentanyl in the air to ventilate the area for ar least 24 hours. After that time, it would be safe to thoroughly disinfect all areas where the drug was used or stored. This includes countertops, floors, carpets, and any other surfaces that may have been exposed. Keep windows open to allow fresh air in.
