I probably should, but I don’t.

As someone who has worked in retail, the amount of people that try on clothes and get deodorant/makeup on things ensures that I wash my clothes before wearing! If you’ve ever hand washed an item when you bring it home, you’ll see how far from clear the water becomes and it’s not cute

Probably some, but definitely some dirt/dry skin as well☹️

I 100000% do. Along with what A1 said, just knowing the manufacturing process, packing, shipping, etc, I’d rather wear something clean.

Also please don’t buy fast fashion if you can help it

If yes, why? Getting more specific, would you wash fast fashion which usually falls apart after a few washes anyway? How about designer pieces that requires dry cleaning?

Nope - do for my kids for not for me.

Always. My SO doesn’t and it drives me nuts. Putting on new unwashed clothes makes me fearful I’m one inch from a rash or breakout.

Yes always.

Yes - worked in retail and you have no idea how disgusting the boxes with shipped clothing are. The clothes are often steamed but not cleaned from box to showroom. Roaches, moisture, etc 🤢🤢🤮
