Always for new clothes and underwear.

2nd hand clothes, soak them first in water, a bit of soap and vinegar for at least 30 minutes to 1 hour then wash them like others.

Unless there's a particular reason blocking from it, I always wash new clothes. They often have chemicals left on them and I do not want them to be soaked up by my skin.

Each step of each moment is a decision. Make your future what you want it to be, and never settle.

Typically, yes. Fabrics are often treated with sizing for the crisp look, and can pick up pesticides in overseas transit.
Dock workers tell interesting stories!
But in a pinch, it’s not unheard of for me to wear a new garment right away.

Plus I’m particular about scent, and running colors. New jeans and white seats means blue marks on furniture.

I wash new sheets before use. I don’t like the “bachelor marks” from the folding. Ha.

I wash all secondhand items.


Wake up every day knowing you make the decision to begin your journey anew.

This choice in this moment defines now.
What is your now?

Nope, I’m old now, never had any problem from wearing new clothes, or using new sheets, etc.

I wash second hand clothes. I know what goes on in the trailers where they store the clothes.

I don't wash new clothes. They lose that brand new crisp look.
I used to work in a stock room. The clothes come folded and in plastic bags.

No one is perfect. Even if they think they are.

I always wash before wearing.
I don't need to keep other people's sweat, or perfume, or whatever, on the clothing!
PLUS there are chemicals on them (even insect repellent for shipping!) that I don't need coming in contact with my skin.

I always wash new clothes before wearing. As soon as I get home with them, I cut off all the tags and throw them in the hamper. I don't care for the chemical smell on new clothes (and if I can smell it, I don't want my skin exposed to it), and besides-- I've seen how people treat clothes in the dressing rooms, throwing them on the floor etc.

Went on a small shopping spree and notice all the tags warn to Wash before wearing. I got curious. I have sensitive skin. Now I know why what the problem may be.
