Wash before wearing.

New clothing comes with more than just a new look. Almost all fabric is treated with a cocktail of chemicals that can cause irritation, including preservatives to prevent mold or mildew during shipping, formaldehyde resins, dyes and finishing chemicals.  A simple launder or dry cleaning will remove chemical manufacturing residue that can lead to contact dermatitis, eczema outbreaks or respiratory problems from simply breathing the fumes.
