Alpo Posted October 20, 2022 Share Posted October 20, 2022 Reading an online story. This guy has just got his first apartment, bought furniture and linens. Takes his new sheets and towels and stuff down to the laundromat and washes them. That seemed strange. Brand new items still in the factory wrap. They should be clean. Do you do that? I know I never have. Later in the story he is helping a homeless girl. He takes her to the thrift store where she gets clothing. Then he takes her to a place where he knows the manager, so she can apply for a job. Before she goes to apply for the job, they go back to his place where she washes all her new clothes. This one actually makes sense. I would expect that the thrift shop washes the clothing that they get donated, but then it's out there hanging on the rack and someone tries it on and doesn't like it and puts it back, so yeah, the new clothing might be kind of scrungy. Although, again, I have never washed clothing before I wore it. Except for blue jeans. If you wear blue jeans without washing them first, when you sweat they tend to turn everything from your waist to your knees blue - both your skin and your skivvies. But I've never washed any other clothing first. Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
