I read that 60C would be sufficient.
The funghi themselves? Could be, dunno. But either way, their spores survive that with ease, killing them takes 90 (I seem to remember that 95 would be better).

If you use a communal washing machine it doesn't hurt to start with the hottest machine, even an empty 90. That can stop critters that might otherwise be transferred from those washing before you.
