  • I never wash my son's clothes first... I don't see why it's needed. They only time we do is if we buy it second hand.

  • i washed a lot of my son's clothes before he was born and realized it wasn't really needed... unless he has really sensitive skin or is allergic to some kind of detergent then i don't both now... honestly i dont see how anyone would have the time to do all that extra laundry, lol

  • I wash all my son's new clothes before I let him wear them. Sometimes in the making of the cloth and fabrics they use chemicals to treat them before sewing the items and it's best if you wash clothes first.

  • I wash clothes first if I have time. My mil works at Children's Place and she tells me to wash them first because they spray all the boxes with insecticide and there are dead bugs in the boxes when they open them up. But the clothes are also in bags. The bugs aren't touching them.

  • If the clothing is new we don't..unless it is undergarments than I wash them.
