Back-to-school shopping is by far the best part of going back to school each fall. We all remember that feeling of a sharp pencil on paper, a new backpack hung over our shoulders, and a fresh pair of shoes on our feet. While walking into school after a summer off might not have been our favorite thing as kids, it was made slightly better with cool new gear.
As parents we know that it’s easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle that happens at the end of summer. While back-to-school shopping is fun for our kids, it’s oftentimes just another chore that we need to cross off our list.
We also know that adding new clothing to your wardrobe can be a hassle. Aside from taking off tags and finding space in your closet, all new clothing should be washed before it’s worn. That’s an extra step that most of us either forget about, or skip.
Before you send your children back to school it’s even more important to wash their clothes before they wear them: with their sensitive skin, new fabrics can cause itching and irritation. And no kid wants to sit in school all day in scratchy clothes.
For the health and safety of your family, it’s important to wash all new clothing before you wear it. Instead of taking the tags off and throwing them in your dresser, take the tags off and throw them in the washing machine. That way they’ll feel a little more worn in when you first wear them, and they’ll also be free of any dirt or grime from wherever they were before you.
But a warning before you wash any new clothing—it’s important to read the manufacturer’s washing instructions before putting anything in the laundry. Not all garments can be treated the same; make sure to separate and wash everything according to the instructions on the tags. Unfortunately, it’s not uncommon for new clothes to be damaged from being washed incorrectly. There’s nothing worse than having worn a new shirt once and being excited to wear it again, only to find that it shrunk or discolored in the wash.
To save yourself the sadness and distress, it’s best to read the manufacturer’s instructions on the tag before you wash anything.
