    Default Holes in new clothes?

    Has anyone else got the problem of getting holes in their new clothes after one or two wears?

    I have just chucked about 10 tops out cause they have holes on them. I normally spend about $20 -$30 on everyday tops so that's a lot of money down the drain, plus some of them were just lovely.

    So what's going on, I never had this problem before. I wash them in a front loader, line dry, fold and put away. I am not doing any heavy work in them or stretching or pulling. We don't have moths? I just can't figure it out!!

    I've attached a photos of what the holes look like

    That was happening to mine too. My guess is getting snagged in washing machine, dryer or on bra strap hooks? Is it also definitely not from the security tags? Do you wash bras is the same load? Are they in a wash bag?

    Have you got a caesarstone kitchen bench top and are the holes occurring around your midsection? The same thing happened to some of my shirts from rubbing against the bench. I googled and apparently it's quite common.

    This. But it happened on a laminate bench top. Wear an apron whilst doing dishes, or any time you're in the kitchen for long, cheap way to save your expensive tops.

    I have lots of t shirts with one tiny hole in the front on my stomach - I figured out it was from my jeans/pants rubbing on it, that corner that sticks out a little bit when you've buttoned them up.
