    Wastingtime - if they take so little care with something that we consume imagine how much less they care about clothing.

    Anyways, each to their own - I was just surprised. Anyone who knows me would know im pretty lazy and suck at all things housework wise, I just assumed if even I did it EVERYONE else did for sure.

    Potentially. But I haven't seen hard evidence of any known damage from this (other than in hazardous occupations).

    And laundry detergent leaves a residue on clothes that is also absorbed through your skin. You could look at it that by NOT washing them first you are saving yourself from that extra bit of detergent absorption...

    Haha - no, just being facetious. I guess it's one of those things - if it worries you then you can wash them first, and if it doesn't then you don't have to do it.

    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.

    I can't tell if you are serious or not.

    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.

    It's all goodd, I was just joking. I know what you were getting at, however
    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.
