    Question Do you wash new clothes prior to wearing?

    or just wear them new? I'm a wash before wearing type.

    I usually wash them, I have allergies and a lot of time the clothes have store smell or perfume from people handling them or trying them on, also some clothes have a yucky smell from the fabric dye in them.

    being a clean freak, the thought of some one else trying on my clothes before i buy them in the store, (and it could happen.) i have to wash before wearing.

    I always wash them before wearing...there's no telling where they've been before I got them

    I always wash before wearing too!! I don't even like trying them on at the store, thinking of all the people that MAY have tried them on before

    I used to not care, then I saw a TV interview before where this garment maker said to please wash the clothes because they use a lot of chemicals in the process. After that, I always washed.

    I almost always wash before wearing. Blue jeans, the dye sometimes rubs off and the other things are stiff. If it's underwear, I always wash them.

    I do if they are secondhand because I don't know for sure whether the previous owner washed them before I got them.

    If they are new, I just go with the flow. I have enough to do without washing brand new clothes.
