PSA: WASH YOUR CLOTHES!!!!
I’ve been working retail for almost 7 months. It’s really made me REALLY appreciate employees. You wouldn’t believe the shitshow we go through sometimes. Anyway that’s besides the point. Please. If you don’t listen to me say anything, listen to this:
WASH YOUR CLOTHES BEFORE YOU WEAR THEM!!!
DO IT!!! PLEASE!!! FOR SANITATION PURPOSES!!!!!
Things fall on the floor, in all parts of the store. And do you know what we do? We pick it up and put it back on the rack like nothing ever happened.
I stress this especially to clearance items. Most things have been in the store for MONTHS. That’s months of different people trying it on. Months of that item falling on the floor. Months of dust that we just pat off and keep moving.
Plus. When people return things, we put them back on the salesfloor. So there’s likely a chance someone wore it the entire day and took it back to the store without washing it.
And it comes right back to the cycle of being tried on and dropped on the floor.
I’m not saying this to scare anyone. In fact, I only buy off the clearance rack. I’m just letting y'all know.
