Subject: ALERT: Wash ALL New Bras & Underwear!!! very graphic
I saw something on the news about this but they didn't show any photos and I can see why...When we first buy that new outfit it looks so pressed for that special occassion etc. but never again will I chance this. With most of our clothes coming from other countries it is to big of a chance.
VERY GRAPHIC LADIES
YOU MUST READ BELOW BEFORE OPENING THE PICTURES.
SHARE THIS WILL YOUR WIVES, DAUGHTERS, SISTERS, FRIENDS...ANY WOMAN
My brother was recently telling me of a news story he heard regarding a flesh-eating bacteria found in new clothing shipments to the USA.
These are the first pictures I have seen regarding that very subject. After seeing the attached photos, I understand the gravity of what he was telling me. This is something that is a very real and very serious concern as you will see.
Ladies / gentelmens please make it a habit from this point forward to wash your just purchased undergarments before wearing them.Or spinning them in the dryer. This is sensitive.
Please share with as many women and men that you know. Our undergarments are made in different parts of the country, sit in boxes and go through many hands and exchanges before we purchase them for ourselves.
TO ALL , PLEASE WASH ALL BRAS, UNDERWEAR ( ALL CLOTHING ) WHEN YOU BUY BEFORE WEARING THEM. YOU CAN THROW THEN IN THE DRYER FOR A QUICK SPIN TO KILL THE PARASITES TOO !!
WE DO NOT KNOW WHAT PARASITE IS IN OUR CLOTHES WHEN WE BUY THEM. FORWARD TO EVERYBODY YOU KNOW.
The attached photos are not for the weak hearted.
