I see London I see France...

I just bought some underpants.

Yesterday I went to Target and had to pee so bad. As I was hovering I noticed that the inside of my underwear was touching the outside of the dirty toilet bowl. I figured that cannot be sanitary so I took them off and chucked them in the garbage. I needed new underwear anyway. I like the low rise Hipsters by Hanes:

They sell them at Target so I got a couple of pairs.

Question: Do you wash your underwear before you wear them for the first time?? I never did before but now I'm thinking I should.

OOHH yeah. Gregg and I have an ongoing disagreement about this, too. I wash EVERYTHING before I wear it, because who knows what goes on in those factories? Gregg thinks I am paranoid, and he would put clothes on, right off the store hanger. Whatever. I wash it all; in fact, I am washing David's new jeans, shirt and khakis as we speak!
Those are cute undies.

I don't. And so far, I've survived.

I always wash underwear, but not clothes. Although sometimes, I feel like I should was jeans b/c they have that funky smell to them, but I hate to wash jeans, so I never do. I just make sure I don't wear a thong before I wash them. :)

I wash underwear, sheets & towels first. Not usually anything else. Bras are just a pain in the arse to wash.

It depends on my timing....I am not very paranoid about those kinds of things. I do wash my fruit and veggies though. :)
I hope I get points for that.

i never did either. sometimes when i am out of dirty underwear i run to nordstroms and grab a hanky panky and buy it and put it on in the car. only when i am wearing a dress. that would be complicated and scandalous for a parking lot if i were wearing pants. but the hanky pankies i dont think get tried on...i dunno though. now im concerned.

Yes, I'm like Karen.... I wash underwear, sheets, towels, etc.

Much (if not most) clothing is made in 3rd world countries where sanitation is not the best. We assume we are "protected" but I think we're really "collectively naive".

Better to be safe....

haha..you are so funny! You took them right off in Target and threw them away?! So you were commando in Target shopping for undies?!

I don't wash anything first, either. I never really thought about it before. I just like for my new things to look "new" at least the first time I wear them. How funny is it that when I was reading, and read that you threw your underwear in the garbage because they touched the toilet, I thought, "Of course she did!" That's just totally something you would do!! Man, I love you!!!

Really??? Never thought about that.. hmmm

Oh I have never even thought about that before. I just rip off the tag and pull them up.

Does that make me a dirty, gross girl?

Ah oh well, no point in starting washing them first this late in the game.
