Why You Should Wash Before You Wear

I know some people that wouldn't dream of wearing a newly purchased garment before washing it first and yet others that couldn't possibly wait that long and don the new piece immediately.  When prompted, the "have to wash it" crowd explain that they feel the garment is dirty until they wash it themselves.  I can understand that.  But there is another equally important reason to wash your garments before wearing them...

Have you ever had a piece of clothing "fall apart" the first time you washed it or even before you washed it?  An open seam; a hem that has let go; a loose button?  Yes?  Chances are you wore it without washing it first.  When you wash a garment, the threads that make up the stitching swell and their fibers "lock" together.  This makes the stitching more resilient to wear and tear and less likely to "slip" undone and open that seam or let that hem down.

So if having to mend brand new purchases annoys you as it does me, then wash before you wear!bar tacks on your PumpEase!

This goes for your PumpEase™ too!  Your hands-free pumping support has bar tacks at opposite ends of the horn openings to reinforce the area of your PumpEase™ that will sustain the most wear and tear (from insertion and removal of your breast pump horns).  We want this stitching to be locked into place to give you the best performance possible from your purchase, therefore...
please wash your PumpEase before you pump.

So tell us what side of the fence you're on - the "wash before you wear" crowd or the "I can't wait" crowd!

I am in the "can't wait" crowd but my husband is in the "wash first" crowd. However, you have convinced me to wash first too.
Thanks for the information.

The only time I wash something before I wear it is if I bought it at Value Village, otherwise I usually want to wear it RIGHT AWAY!
I think I may have to change my ways though...
Very Good information, THANKYOU!

Thank you so much for the information. I now know that it's important you wash spanking new clothes before wearing.

I never even considered washing first, unless of course those with stains, dust etc.
