  • Yeah, especially brand new. Some of them (new) have God-knows-what on them from warehouses, etc - you never know who's touched them, I've seen people trying clothes on tiny babies in stores, the chemicals in some stuff...yeah, every last little peice of new or "new" clothing for everyone in the house is washed before getting worn.

  • yes because you never know who had their hands on it, when they last washed their hands, if they were sick or what they touched before they touched them.. washer to the rescue!

  • Yes- clothes are sprayed with flame-retardants and can be exposed to other things before they're shipped. I used to manage a retail store, and they warned us about that. So be aware- all clothes should be washed before they're worn.
