Anyone noticed anything weird about new clothes/cloths? Answered
Has anyone noticed that new clothes and things like washcloths and dishtowels seem to repel water when they get wet? Not really repel, but they don't absorb it, and the surface stays (and feels) wet.
After the clothes get washed a couple hundred times, it wears off and is like old clothes.
Can anyone tell me why this is happening (and why manufacturers decided to do this)?
