New Clothes on Rack

In fact, new clothes is not as clean as what you think. According to Belsito, who spoke to The Wall Street Journal, dyes and formaldehyde resins can spark skin irritation in some or a full-blown allergic reaction in others. But those are far from the only risks.

You can’t imagine how many hands had touched the new clothes in the store and how many people had tried on them. Moreover, stores are’t the only place where your new clothes could be touched by others. From the people who manufactured the clothing, to those who shipped it and others who stocked the racks, touches are ubiquitous and inevitable. Another point is that many dark-hue clothes will have a slightly color floating. Pre-washing can prevent any residual dyes from staining your skin or result in skin irritation or other diseases.
