Do You Rinse Your New Clothes Before Wearing Them?


I do. I rinse them in plain water with a few drops of disinfectant added. I leave them to soak for about an hour so that the disinfectant can sort of "get to work!" Then I spin-dry them and put them out in the sun the other side out. You never know who's tried them on for size. If you are not in a habit of doing this, would you consider it a good thing to get used to?
