Default Can ringworm stay in the environment?

A while back I adopted a kitten i found and he turned out to have ringworm, i took him to the vet and got it cleared up but my other cat ended up catching, i got that cleared up but Jinx caught it and then the cat again. I kept trying to keep the infected one away from the other, but my siblings would let them out together when I wasn't home, this time the vet gave me meds for all of them, but I read the other day that is can stay in the environment and is really hard to get rid of. Is this true? Do I need to scrub the entire house, and wash everything?
