Tiny holes in my washing?

Recommended Posts

2. It could be a problem with the washing powder apparently (according to the guy who looked into ours for us) whereby it clogs and causes some sort of chemical wear and tear. Sounds odd I know.

 

Was going to put that, but wasn't sure - do you remember a good few years ago (over a decade) i think it was persil who started adding a new ingredient to their product, until the other companies claimed that clothes wore out a lot quicker if you used it.

It's worth checking whether all of these items are stored in the same wardrobe or set of drawers because if they are then it makes the chances of some form of nasty eating them is much higher.

 

My t-shirts always have loads of tiny holes all over the front of them, but since I foster kittens I know what causes the damage :)

I used to get these tiny holes in my clothes, I put it down to the drum of the washing machine, I bought a new washing machine, no more little holes :D

I've noticed the same thing but the holes always appear in the same place so I can't see it being bra wire otherwise it'd be random. Wondered if it was the material catching on my belt buckle as it in roughly the same area.

Could be carpet beetles - they don't just get in the carpet, they get in the nooks and crannies of drawers etc - we had them in our house a long time ago, total nightmare. They don't appear in their thousands, so no panic but they do nibble holes in t-shirts, knickers, socks etc.

They are a very hard and small black dot (almost) that you'll find all over: in drawers, on window sills ... - we went from mostly carpet to mostly laminate because of them.

Makes me shudder to think of them.

This used to happen to my clothes. I mentioned it to a friend and she said it'd happened to her too, and she'd realised it was the hooks on her bra fastenings that were catching the fabric of the other clothes in the washing machine.

 

I started making sure my bras were fastened before I put them in the machine and I've never had a problem since.
