RFID technology has been used for laundry tracking for a long time. You have to considery below 4 point if you are looking for a RFID laundry tag
Attachment of tags
Durability of tags
All these aspects have massively improved from the first time RFID tags were used for laundry years ago. There are several good options when looking for an RFID tag to track your uniforms or laundry. RFID tags for uniform and laundry tracking also come in various frequencies. What used to be a domain of low or high frequency is increasingly being supplemented by UHF, which allows for longer read ranges, reading more tags at the same time and expanded user memory.
The tags also differ by way of attachment. They can be sewn in (usually disc/button form factor or rectangular shape inserted into a seam), adhered (using industrial-strength adhesive) or as a hangtag.
