    So, what NEW things do you WASH before you wear/use??

    ... my order of spangly new towels from Christy's has been completed. So, do I wash them before I use them when they arrive??

    .my friend washes absolutely EVERY new item of clothing before she wears it ... Is there anything you wash before you use or wear it? ... Just wonderin :-)

    wash everything before wearing, didn't used to but I find some stuff iritates my skin....tell a lie I don't wash new socks!

    I think that there is a chemical applied to most new material, so it is best to wash it off before wearing, if you have sensitive skin

    Towels and bedding gets washed before use, but thats it

    that would explain a lot, i wash everything before wearing it too, sometimes wearing straight away it doesnt feel soft, it feels stiff (due to giant presses in factories?)

    [COLOR="DarkOrchid"][FONT="Comic Sans MS"][SIZE="2"]thinking about it.. it does make you wonder how many times the 'new' clothes you have bought, might have been tried on in the shop.. or even bought, and .. dare I say it worn... , and then returned as 'unsuitable' ...:thinking:[/SIZE][/FONT][/COLOR]

    Don't wash any new clothes, only dark coloured bed sheets as they tend to make me itch.

    Oh yeh I was just thinking of fabric items earlier.

    I don't blame you. The plastic on those blow up dolls can be a little irritating.

    everything

    kitchen stuff...not clothes... as like they seem to have a new look to them pre wash.

    hi all x

    towels, bedding and underwear

    Cars!!!!!!!!!!! :thumbsup:

    eewww rank, how can ya not wash clothes before you wear them! :shock:

    Never washed anything when new

    never wash anything when it's new. kind of helps the imune system. being so paranoid about things being clean is why so many people have allergies

    I'd rather get allergies than other peoples skin and hair in my bellybutton

    have to agree. I wear things like jumpers and jeans 2 to 3 times before they go in the wash (unless they get dirty of course).

    Clothes last 3 times longer this way as its the washing machines and tumble dryers which wear clothes out ;-)

    Liar, seen ya in Oxfam last week haggling over a pair of torn y fronts :roll:

    Cheap, recycled condoms from Poundland. To not wash them would just be plain unhygienic.
