No worries: Swimming pools, bathtubs, and washing machines do not transmit HPV infections. The laundry can be washed together (but separate the lights and darks, and know which fabrics should use hot, warm, or cool water. Otherwise, people may get upset if their clothes get messed up in the laundry).
