Most people assume that when they buy a brand-new clothing item whether it be shoes, underwear, or pants, the clothing will be clean and sanitary. Think again.
CBS 21 decided to conduct a little experiment using brand-new clothes and secondhand clothes. The clothes were taken to a lab and tested for bacteria.
The results were pretty disturbing. Every single item had bacteria, including a brand-new package of women’s underwear. The only item that was bacteria-free was a secondhand pair of shoes.
