I am freaking out because I think I forgot to put laundry detergent in my towels when I washed them and then put them in the dryer next day I used a towel and two rags for my body. I know they said the way to kill the virus is to use hot water and soap but I think it was just hot water:( plz help

Stop worrying about this. The hot water and heat from the dryer would kill any virus on these items.
