Saves From Infection

Wearing blood-stained clothes on your body over an open wound can risk a serious infection. Even though it will not result in zombification, but still, it is one of the biggest hassles you can put on yourself.

Washing Clothes and your body will rid it of dirty blood and minimize the risk of infection.
