I was sorting clothes today and came across one top that is new with tags. I had bought it late last year so no possibility of it having coronavirus on it. Still, I felt like putting it for a wash. I was recalling how we got new clothes in childhood. Got the fabric from a "textile" store, soaked it overnight, dried and then took it to the tailor. When the stitched garment came home, we had to wait for the right and auspicious day to wear it, and after a bath. For a long time in the U.S., I used to always wash clothes and bed-sheets before using. Stopped for a few years, and now will always wash after coronavirus is gone. : ) Share your memories of new clothes from childhood. And, how different is it now. Do you always wash new clothes and bed-sheets, towels etc before using them? .
