Killing Bacteria In Public Dryer

In a public drying machine, what setting must one use to avoid bacteria?
Will permanent press kill 99.9% bacteria? If not, what can one do to kill bacteria in the machine?

It really depends on just how hot the dryer your using gets. An idea came to mind that you may want to use bleach wipes or similar. There is very little chance that I have noticed for bacteria to grow in a dryer. You could even use a face cloth and a little bleach water mixture and wipe it out. A more cost saving idea would be to hang your stuff out and allow to dry, or hang inside during winter months.

Here's what a doctor once told me: the perfect temperature for bacteria is 98.6. That's why you run a fever when you're sick, even a few degrees hotter kills bacteria. I'm sure the dryer is hot enough.
