I Hate Itchy Clothes

    You Don'T Have To Be Itchy.

    Don't wear undergarments unless you have to. Wear a breatheable fabric like soft cotton. Wear silk or satin. Buy high threadcount sheets. Don't use fabric softener. Use less detergent...and if clothes still itch...switch.

    Coming to That Time of Year

    Especially those Christmas Present jumpers always received and you have to wear to please,  which somehow always drive you mad with itchiness as they are made of that wool that leaves rashes but also sheds itself, onto every other item of clothing within 10 feet of it.

    Drives Me Crazy,

    Itchy clothes make me so out of my mind. All I can think about is getting it off my skin. I scratch and leave my skin almost bloody if I have something irritating my skin.
