View Full Version : Cheap T shirts, skin reactions

I'll be found wearing a T most hours, awake or asleep. The ones I bought recently at Walmart cause hives. Supposedly made in the Phillipines or some place. Is it the dyes? The cotton somehow? They ain't my old Fruit of the Loom.

Just curious. The damn things will be rung up as rags.

Serves you right for shopping at swill*mart.
It's probably mites.

You didn't change laundry detergents recently did you? I had that problem and finally traced it to the bargain detergent.

Have you washed them a few times before wearing them? If not - do it.

In some of the low cost countries they use chemicals (and dyes) long abolished in the west. Washing them a few times should get most of that out.
