Yep. I wash everything before use. Only time I didn't was when DS had diarrhea all over me. Had clothes for him, but it was either buy a new pair of pants and wear them, or wear poo pants for the rest of the day.
Not swearing, there is a product called eco balls that uses no detergent. It's a ball that has little ceramic balls (I think) inside that cleans the clothes.
ETA: I've just double checked, the one we use is called eco wash laundry balls.
the quote below me is basically my opinion on it and it's not something I worry about. I wash towels, I was things we use for eating and drinking, I was underwear...tops/shirts/jeans/jackets/dresses etc. I'm not worried about.
