TO WASH, OR NOT TO WASH, THAT IS THE QUESTION..

Do you ever wash your “new” clothes right after you’ve bought them? I never did ( confession time..) A research by Dr. Philip Tierno - director of microbiology and immunology at New York University studies said that “new clothes” that come from the store, are far more dirtier than you probably think.

I’m sure everyone recognizes the dilemma of whether your new clothes must first wash ( takes so much time!) or if you just put them on immediately. When you buy new clothes, you expect that they really new and that you are the first person to wear them. But, this is not always the case.  For instance: consider what happens to clothes when you return them to the store for some reason. Sales people will just put them on the rack. Ready to get bought by the next person.
