Is it bad for your skin to wear new jeans before washing them?

Report as

It depends yes. Reason is because if you try on or put on new clothes before washing them you never know if the person before who tried on those pants might have had a sickness. So I always wash my new clothes when I get home.
Also no. Reason is that some of the jeans might have a different kind of texture/fabric that it might be itchy on you sometimes. So you should see what kind of fabric the jeans might be.

It's bad to wear new jeans before washing them, but you can do it if you want to. However, depending on the brand, if you're allergic to dyes, you might consider cleaning them first.

It can be, as, sometimes there are chemicals they add to them, to keep them from getting wrinkled

id recommend washing them first because they might have had some stuff growing on them without you knowing that they are there

the reason you wash them the first time is that a lot of people have tried them on before you bought it. nothing to worry about i guess :)

I never did until I saw a documentary. They have travelled far and wide to many dirty places before they arrive in stores. Steaming decreases and presses the jeans but does not eliminate dirt and dyes. To prevent rashes and or infections I now recommend washing before wearing.

It actually is bad for you. You should always wash your new clothes before you wear them. A couple years ago on the news someone got dye poisoning from their jeans!

My mom always says, when I get new pants, ect. ALWAYS wash them. You don't know who tried those on before you. I highly recommend you wash your clothes before you wear them, it's for your own good.

It's not bad for your skin, but the dye may rub off onto other things if you don't wash it first.
