Did you know you should always wash new clothes before you wear them?
July 28, 2021
New clothes often have a small amount of dye resting on the surface that was not absorbed during the dyeing process. If you do not wash the item before you wear it, that loose dye could transfer onto your skin or other clothes. Most fabrics made from synthetic fibers (polyester, acrylic) are colored with azo-aniline dyes. These dyes can cause severe skin reactions for people, especially small children, who are allergic to them.
There is also no telling if the item was tried on by other people before you bought it. It could carry bacteria or even lice carried by those individuals. Don’t take the chance, wash all new clothes to make sure nothing is lurking in your clothes.
