If you haven't been washing your new clothes before putting them on, you should start doing so now. With the impact of global pandemic increasing day by day, we need to maintain personal hygiene and keep ourselves in the best of health. While that new piece of cloth may look clean to your eyes but there could be harmful bacteria & remnants of harsh chemicals that are harmful to your health and skin on it. This is NYK. We bring you some reasons why you should wash every new piece of clothing before wearing it.
• LICE CAN LIVE ON THEM
While we have always known the much-feared lice to make our hair & head as their home, other types of lice also make clothes & beddings their habitat and live up to a month. They are tiny in size and can easily live your clothes & feed your fresh blood. So, why take the risk, just toss your new dress to the washer before you wear it!
• DRESSING ROOMS ARE THE BREEDING GROUNDS OF BACTERIA
Yes, you heard it right! It is very much possible to transfer bacteria, lice & fungus from one person to another person especially when clothes are tried on. Changing rooms in the clothing stores can become breeding grounds for viruses and bacteria. That's why washing every new piece of cloth is much more important than you would think!
• HARSH CHEMICALS
Clothing factories can sometimes be very unhygienic! They tend to add sorts of chemicals during production of the new clothes to protect them in transit and all these chemicals in the clothes can cause skin irritation. And honestly, you have no idea where your new clothes have been. So, in the end washing them in a good detergent can give you peace of mind.
