Working in a retail store, you see an abundance of crazy things people do to the clothes there, either by accident or on purpose (I've witness someone pick up a pair of pants and sneeze right into them!) This makes you think why the stores aren't doing anything for infection control, but then again, how would they know every single issue that happens? Some stores do not recommend washing their jeans because it damages the denim. An age old question is how to keep clothes looking new, feeling new and not fading. I do know people who refuse to wash their clothes even after they purchase them, but what you do you think? This raises the question: Do you wash your clothes when your purchase them and before wearing them?
