Hi Tina, me too, would have given it a quick wash with powder and fab conditioner, well, if it was my stuff, if it was his, wouldn't bother lol
I do wash my stuff seperately from his work stuff and more gently too, I have probably only worn something once so it doesn't need such a pounding as his mucky things, with his dinner down the front half the time.
Keep meaning to get one of those grown up pelican bibs for him lol

I have done that Ann, let's face it our ancestors had to wash their clobber in the river and no powder then!

Probably did your w-machine good too.

Its good for your clothes to just wash in plain water now and again, no harm done !

Just took a load of washing out of the machine and realised I had put no powder in - anyway, the result is fine, everything is nice and clean!!!!
