Yes. Look at it this way, you want to wash the sizing and stuff out of the stuff, because you don't want that all over your baby's skin.
Also, think about when you go to the store. You see all sorts of people who are sick, dirty, etc pawing through the racks looking for what they want to buy. You see little kids with snot all over their face, wiping their nose on their hands, then grabbing the baby blanket to show their mom. You see things getting knocked off the racks and then someone steps on it, then notices it and picks it up and hangs it back up.....
Now, do you really want to take that bib that's been dropped, stepped on, coughed all over, etc, and hang it around your baby's neck and possibly wipe their mouth with the corner of it?
I don't mean that in a harsh way, just that if you think about it, what the stuff goes through is pretty gross, so you really do need to wash it.
