i know you are supposed to, but why do you have to wash them before the baby wears them?

Because you don't know what irratants have touched them in the store or the manufacturer. Babies have sensitive skin and can react very easily to lots of things we don't even notice.

So many people touch them and it goes through so much shit to get to the stores, its nasty sometimes to imagine what those outfits go through i'm sure, and who knows if they washed the fabric before...

some companies put famelderhyde on the fabricto stop them getting soiled in transit or in the shop...

shop store rooms are not the cleanest place in the world ...

and then you dont know who's dirty horrible hands have been all over them in the store.

I couldn't find the All without dyes/perfumes in my area, so I'm trying the Tide that is dye and perfume free. They should be pretty much the same right? Dreft is just ridiculously too expensive.
