    Default Do you... Fluff thread

    Do you wash new clothes and underwear before you wear them?

    Why or why not?

    What about kids clothes and underwear?

    Why or why not?

    I always wash new clothes before I wear them. There's no way to know how many stinky, sweaty people have tried on items before you purchase them. Also some items are itchy or stiff when you first buy them and hey soften when you wash the first time. The only time I've not washed something was when I was away on holidays and bought a cardigan because it was cold. Didn't bother me so much because it's not like it goes on your bare skin much anyway.

    I always wash new clothes before wearing them due to the dyes in the fabric, not knowing what sort of grot the clothes have been exposed to in the manufacturing and transport progress, and also because other people may have tried on the garment before you got it.

    Always, they are covered in chemicals and who knows who touched them on before you purchased them.

    Nope. I'm a rebel without a cause!

    I'm also lazy. After reading the replies I'm thinking I probably should, though. I'm certain someone will reply at some point with a horror story that convinces me.

    Yes I do.

    As an aside... I glanced at the title of this thread and read it as " do you fluff? thread"... and I was thinking "well, we all do!"
