    Default Clothes for charity

    Ok I literally have bags of clothes to give to charity, question is do I wash them first before taking them to the charity bins?

    I never send dirty clothes, but I don't wash already clean stuff again before I send it. They wash everything before it is sorted/stored/distributed for sale etc.

    Exactly this.
    The last time I did a big wardrobe clean out was the only time I had to do some washing before sending the clothes because I had an overflowing laundry hamper that I really didnt want to deal with and couldn't remember if I had thrown clean clothes in there to get them off the floor or if they were dirty .

    Thanks it's come from cupboards / draws etc so I haven't pulled it from the dirty washing pile. I was just overwhelmed by ( what I estimate to be) at least 6 loads of washing

    Another silly question do I put items in the bins individually or in the bag ( I feel so silly for asking)

    Do wash used clothes before sending them, sometimes one smelly item can make the whole bag smell and the whole bag ends up getting chucked. Not all places wash before being sold either. Apart from ironing, I guess just think about whether you would buy it in the condition you donate it.

    If they're clean from your cupboard then there's is no need to rehash them! And when I donate clothes input them in bags and the in the donation bin. Way easier that way. Plus I don't think the inside of the bins are necessarily very clean.
