Since I am 30 wks pregnant I am preparing for little one to arrive and am washing all the clothes we’ve gotten…. It got me to thinking.
I don’t wash new clothes that I’ve gotten myself, I just rip off the tags and wear them. On the other hand DH does wash his new clothes before wearing.
So what do you do?

New clothes and undies, I just rip the tag off and wear them. If it’s thrifted, I wash them first.

I just wear it. I don’t buy used clothes because I am really weird and think people’s death germs are all over them. So yeah.

I just wear it. It kind of drives my husband crazy. He washes everything first. I will wash Baby’s clothes first though.

I generally wash undies, but the rest I just wear right away.

Unless it was bought preowned I don’t wash. Especially not if I buy online, which is where I buy majority of my stuff. I guess I could see washing it because others may have tried it on but I usually don’t.

@peachacid: +1. The thought of used clothing makes me shudder.

New clothes for BF get washed no matter what it is.
New clothes for me usually I just take the tags off and wear them. Undies are definitely washed.
New clothes for BFs son (4yrs old) get washed.

I wash pretty much everything, except outerwear/coats/jackets. Many clothes are treated with flame retardants or have been tried on by people, left in dusty warehouses or on dirty changing room floors.

99% of my clothes are thrifted! So you DEFINITELY have to wash them first!

I will wash undies/bras/dark wash jeans before I wear them. Everything else, its just rip and wear.

I just wear them if they are new. Wash them if thrifted. I also wash new underwear and swim suits though because you just never know…

I have super sensitive skin so I wash everything I get before I wear it. Everyone else just rips the tags off and wears it.

@sn2bmrsmntgmry: I put depends, but not for the reason you gave. I’m allergic to blue dye, so all blue clothing must go through the wash at least once to make sure it’s not bleeding color. Everything else is rip and wear.
