We are very lucky that we are given hand-me-downs from various family members but the cousins are much older so they have been stored in the loft for 2 plus years.
I have just got the next batch out and they smell musty and like a village hall - do I really need to rewash them all? I reckon it would take me all week of nice weather. Do you reckon just hanging them out for a flap around in the breeze would be alright? Some probably won't fit for another six months or so but I am going to pop them in the wardrobe so I don't want them to be musty in there.
I've been lucky enough to get lots of hand-me-downs for dd but I always wash them first because otherwise they don't smell of 'us'! I've got a black sack or two of things waiting to be washed It's a pain but I'm grateful
Oh no! That definitely isn't what I wanted to hear - there is probably at least ten loads of washing to do and we don't have a tumble drier so I was hoping I could skip the washing step. Oh well, I will give them all a wash this week they currently smell like the church hall cupboard smell.
