This Is Why You Should Wash New Clothes Before You Wear Them! Wow!

Show of hands. Who has bought a piece of clothing and worn it without washing it? 

Yep, us too! 

You may want to re-think that practice. 

According to a professor of microbiology and pathology at New York University, it’s not four or five or six people that have tried on that shirt or pants or bathing suit before you.... it’s dozens and dozens if that garment sits there for weeks or a month!

In tests done on clothing, they've found clothing with norovirus, bacteria including strep and staph, and even fecal germs.

Consider yourself warned!
