Subject: Do you wash new clothes before you wear them?

Written By: Barefoot_Blues on 09/15/05 at 9:26 pm

I never do, but I was wondering if some people do

I agree with that.

It's always good to wash new clothes when you buy them just to be on the safe side

Yeah, I always put new clothes into the wash first. You never know where they've been, or who's tried them on at the store.

Good question.

For "new" (not used, storebought) clothes, I never did before, but the replies here have made me want to now! ;)

I always wash used clothes I get at the thrift store, though!

No, I don't.  I hate trying on clothes in the store, so I almost never do.  My philosophy is that once I get home, if I take the tags off and wash them, it will be more difficult to return them if they don't fit.

The problem with my philosophy though, is that even when something doesn't fit, I'm usually too lazy to take it back anyway.  It usually sits in my closet for months and eventually ends up in the goodwill pile.

I never wash them for the same reason. If it  shrinks , then yo can't return them. But , knowing someone else might have tried them on as well. I should wash them first  :-\\

Almost always, unless like Kim said, it's a jacket or  something I need right then.  :)

I don't either. I tend to find that the first wear is usually as good as it gets for me.  ;D

I only wash them to get rid of the smell and newness of the clothing. They actually do recommend on some clothing that you wash once before wearing.

If it is an item that I know has never been tried on I won't wash it first but otherwise yes, I will wash the item before I wear it.

Just because I don't shower every week like you do doesn't make me less of a person, in fact, I think the strong odor makes me more of a man.

With new clothing, I don't even though I know I should. However, if I pick stuff up at the clothing drive (used clothing), I wash it ALL before wearing it.

Why is it that we wash the used clothes but not the new ones? When I go to the Goodwill I always wash the clothes when I get them home... even though I already know that they have been washed by the Goodwill because each piece has the exact same smell of fabric softener and dryer sheets. We are a weird bunch! :D ;D

Yes because I sometimes have a reaction to new clothes.  Horrible rashes so I wash them to get rid of residues.
