    For the kids- definitely. For myself - intimate garments yes. Otherwise I smell them, if they smell chemically I do if not if I want to wear them that day/night I will or I'll chuck them in the wash.

    Never washed baby clothes first either...

    I don't think I know anyone who does this IRL - only seen it on here.

    I'm a bit weird... I wash all linen, all children's clothes, all DH's clothes, and all my underwear.

    But I LOVE wearing new clothes straight from the shop! They never seem to look quite as perfect once they've been washed .

    I've only seen it here too. Never heard of it before except maybe with baby clothes.

    But what do people do with dry clean only - do you have them dry cleaned first?

    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.
    Joking Sorry - some things probably don't translate so well via written word!

    I don't do it with my own clothes, but I would with baby clothes.
