Dirty,stained and nasty bad!

My sil gave me a bag of clothes, some for baby , daughter and a couple of shirts for me. These clothes are so dirty and nasty you can smell them at least ten feet away.'m not kidding,my husband could smell them from across the room sitting on the couch approx 10 ft from me) They are badly stained too. I wouldnt give these to a homeless person or thriftstore bad. she would never accept anybody giving her stuff like that(she might of done it on purpose) Should I say something to her about them ?

  • I would. That's gross, but it depends on what kind of relationship you have with her and if she is going to start drama and if you are up to it or not. Use your best judgement, but like I said, I would.

  • Just tell her you went through the stuff and none of it worked for you. I have the same problem with my SIL, she gives me stuff she should of threw out! I never use it, or go through it because I know what to expect. I just throw it out.

  • Is this your husband's sister or your brother's wife? If it is the prior, I would have DH say something along of the lines of "None of it was really anything we needed." If you even think she did it purpose, then probably, saying something confrontational with start drama.

  • wash them, reevaluate, and yes, say something.

  • even if tey were wash with bleach in the load they wouldn't be worth anything , maybe cleaning rags possibly. but yuck I wouldn't want to clean anything in my house with them.
