Do I need to pre-wash organic cotton flannel bedding?

March 11th, 2008 at 07:37 pm

I bought this new cute sheet set and am thinking on using it today, but I am to sick to go to the laundromat. How necessary do you think it is to wash bedding (sealed in a package) before using it first time?

    Hmm... I would wash before use if your skin is at all sensitive. Sometimes the stuff they use to size/finish the cloth can be an irritant.

    Not to mention new sheets are usually scratchy....

    I pre-wash anything/everything I buy. God only knows who/what has handled/touched it. Ewwwwwwwwwwww

    I guess I'll wait until tomorrow and go wash it.

    I'd sniff it and check for a scent that you can't tolerate. Not saying that its sterile, but a dry sheet in a package can't support microbial critters - you're unlikely to catch anything new with the sheets. Probably want to wash them in the next couple of days to keep yourself from re-catching what you have.

    Better to sleep in the unprewashed sheets than it would be to sleep in the sheets containing your contagion. Big Grin

    Cute sheets, where did you get them honey?

    I would wash it first just to make sure.

    Usually they are ready to use, but there may be some dusty irritants during packaging that may cause skin allergy especially if your skin is so sensitive. I may wash it lightly.
