Experts have revealed the disgusting amount of germs that can be found on new clothing.

Since dozens of people try on a garment before you, their germs are contracted onto the clothes and put right back on shelves to be sold.

One doctor revealed that after testing a single silk blouse from a retailer, he found fecal matter and other excretions.

Getting infections from these germs is low-risk but not impossible and viruses can be transmitted, such as MRSA.

Doctors suggests washing new clothing, wearing undergarments under clothes you’re trying on and washing hands after shopping to avoid infections.
