I never take any medication, EVER! I dont take advil or nothing. I went to see my doctor, Come to find out I have a urine infection and now I have to take novamoxin (I beleive is a form of pinnicilin)...
im 12 and haven't had it yet i might later but im just wondering....
Are there health concerns about wearing clothes from thrift stores (if washed before wearing)?
I like to buy clothes from thrift stores because they are so much cheaper than buying them new: but is it possible to be infected by something from the previous owner if I wash the clothes with laundry detergent before I put them on? Thanks.
no problem what so ever... viruses die after a few hours anyways.. Those clothing have probably sat there for weeks, months, and years.. You wont get crabs or anything (of course I wouldnt buy 2nd hand undies or bathing suits)
but I do buy 2nd hand coats, jackets, shirts, pants etc.
If you think of the industrial chemicals in new clothes and how that can effect your skin. Id think 2nd hand clothing is healthier..
Clothing donated to thrift stores is washed before put out for sale. They use industrial strength cleansers. They are required to do so by law. Still, before you wear something you bought at a thrift store, wash it anyway, because of other shoppers who have handled the clothes or tried them on.
I discovered thrift stores 2 years ago. I've washed and worn the clothing with no problem. I don't see how it could be harmful if you wash it. Unless you are talking underwear. I wouldn't wear used underclothing or swimsuits. I prefer these things new.
The clothes you buy from a second hand store or a department store should be washed by you before you wear them Weather they are new or used, they often sit in boxes in warehouses for a lengthy time. Even with the best environment, dust and dirt are a factor. Hope this helps.
I like clothes from second hand stores also. More character and a bit of history! :)
Make sure you use hot water i believe you could still get scabies (skin lice) if not washed in hot soapy water.
No. There are three things you have to worry about:
Bacteria that will die in the wash.
Viruses that will break apart in the wash or dry up in the dryier.
Chemicals and I have never heard of anybody that got sick from chemical exposure from a thrift store. Generally people are smart enough to despose of contaminated clothing.
