All textile materials that you sterilize –It’s in the first- porus materials and in the second – its materials that produce textile dust.
If you try to sterilize textile you should remember that textile pack cannot have weight more than 7 kg. (EN 285). If you have weight of textile pack more than 7 kg, air (first enemy of steam sterilization) cannot be removing from big textile pack and you have fail result of CI.
All materials that you are use in OR cannot produce textile dust (that produce textile linen). All OR in European countries are certificated in Clean rooms Standard class 9 (ISO 14644). Textile dust in air of clean rooms (Operation rooms) can be cause of non infections (allergic) inflammation of surgical wound.
Technically, if standards of OR in your country is not so strong like in EU and The USA, you can sterilize textile materials for your purposes, however you should know that your sterilizer can sterilize textile materials (EN 285, 134C-5 min, vacuum air removing, vacuum dry, minimum 3 pulses of air evacuation)
Hope it’s help
