I would definately wash. You don't know howmany people touched them, steped them or how long they were in storage. The baby's skin is so delicate (sp- sorry) that you would not want him/her to get a rash from dirty clothes.

so should i wash them in bath tub or machine. cos i think they are too little to wash in mashine.

I washed all of my baby's clothes at a friends house. I did not feel confortable washing it at a normal laundry mat and they were fine. All the clothes are going to be around the same color (pink or blue) so ther won't be a problem on color fading or stretching. Make sure you set is a delicate, and i would recomend drift detergent. I think tide is too rough on the baby's skin.

machine, my kids wore preemie clothes, and they did just fine in the washing machine.  

Also, my kids never had a sensitivity to the detergent.  So the detergent part, do what you feel is safe.  If you want to spend extra money on baby detergent you can.

Also, I washed my kids clothes with mine, and nothing bled, or anything.

yes wash them first and you may want to use a dye free detergent, tide and all both make one. The clothes are not too small for the machine, they will be fine.

I had preemie clothes and never had pink or blue because I hate how babies have to wear their "color". My daughter has extremely sensitive skin, so sensitive in fact that I have to use only huggie supreme diapers and only aveeno lotion and bath wash because she will get the worst rash all over if I don't. Regular detergent like Tide was never a problem for her though so I'm pretty sure that it is ok. Also, I wash all her clothes with mine and that isn't a problem either.

We always washed the baby's clothes in Dreft, at least until they were a little older...
