I'm being trolled here.
not all of us have money to burn like you clearly do, we can't even afford to wash our dirty clothes any more, if they begin to pong a bit fabreze is the answer or the cheap supermarket equivalent.
ebay from thailand or local primark specials then probably yeah
at the very least id consider ironing them
You only need to do this with baby clothes unless you are a great big Mental..
I like new clothes smell
If it's straight out of a packet, then you get those fold creases all over it, even if it is technically ready to wear.
I'm guessing all of the other posters aren't shirt wearers.
can't you just spray it with a bit of water and then iron it or just use the steam from the iron?
washing it just seems mightily excessive especially in these times of recession
well i'd be adding it to a load so not much diffidence.
you could wait another day and complete the load with clothes which actually need washing
The knowledge that a hundred dirty, sweaty hands may have touched the garment adds so much to the experience...
Absolutely nobody does this. Nobody.
cos of the pesticides in the cotton
what are you actually putting yourself at risk of then from these pesky pesticides??
i'll continue risking it until i've heard otherwise, thanks for the warning though if i do get some horrible flesh eating disease at some point in the future i'll know why now.
Apart from the fact you have no idea where they've been or whose tried them on between them being made and you purchasing them, I usually find new clothes to be a bit stiff/itchy.
I tell my girlfriend that I washed said clothes before wearing, but really I didn't and I have a little chuckle when she hugs me.
I do cause they've always got those creases that make you look like you've just shoplifted. And they stink of exploitation (in the case of high street shops) or BO (in the case of charity shops).
always. find new stuff a bit itchy and smells funny before you wash it
then you wash them and find it shrinks a bit or the material dries out and you end up a bit disappointed
you'll be helping the environment as well, won't anybody think of the children?!!!
But with my urine. It's a territorial thing.
Most low-to-mid-price clothes when you buy them have been treated with a sort of dressing that makes them resistant to something or other, not sure really but it's there and it stops the fabric from breathing when you wear it, like an invisible layer of cling film. First wash gets rid of the stuff. But if you buy a t-shirt and then wear it on a hot day without washing it first, you'll sweat like a hog.
woaah easy on the jargon there prof!
Yesterday I bought a new pair of jeans. Today I died.
How is that different to you just washing it yourself when you get home?
