Or…if you are on vacation at someone else’s home and are not sure if your dog will stay within the yard, then this is a good solution. **CAUTION: Be sure to check on your dog often in case they have gotten themselves stuck somewhere in the yard.**

Most People Don’t Wash New Clothes Before Wearing Them. Here’s Why That’s A Huge Mistake!
Do you wear clothes you just bought without washing them first? This is why you shouldn’t.

Many people are convinced that when they buy new clothes they are getting clean garments. But this assumption was debunked by CBS 21, as they took some “new” items to a lab to have them swabbed and tested for bacteria. And if you’ve never put too much thought into how sanitary your new items are, these findings might be a bit disturbing for you. Every item that was tested had bacteria, and that also includes a sealed package of female underwear. Ironically, the only thing that didn’t test positive for bacteria were some second-hand shoes.

Clothing items are handled and tried on by different people at stores. That’s why experts recommend washing new items with hot water and even bleach before wearing them for the first time.

Sanitizing shoes is much easier, as you just need to wipe the inside with an antibacterial product. But bacteria is not the only thing you should be concerned about: clothing manufacturers use formaldehyde to prevent bacteria growth in clothes, so getting rid of those chemicals first by washing your new clothes wouldn’t be a bad idea.
