I have started lately to wonder if HPV virus is killed by laundry detergent, hand soap, shower soap and antibacterial soap.
 
For example:
- if i wash my penis and THEN my butt, could i be transferring HPV particles to my butt? 
- How about when i wash my clothes at parent's laundry machine, could they be at risk?  
- If i take a shower at my brother's house, could his family be at risk?
- could a neighborhood's shared laundry machines help spread HPV?
 
Just curious if anyone's done research in this area?

Afterbuzz -

Transferring warts from one area to another is possible since the virus is very contagious. No need to panic, just be careful. Unfortunately, soaps and detergents do not kill the virus (as these products do for bacteria) .

Doing your laundry or showering at your brother's house poses no risk to his family. Just be sure that nobody is using your towel.

No need to worry.

No problem at all. I had these same questions and worries (and I work in the health field!).
