I had a bunch of long sleeved shirts laundered in mid-June but then my summer wardrobe kicked in and I didn't wear any of those shirts. If I wanted to wear one of the shirts now, it would still be "freshly" cleaned in the sense that it hasn't been worn since it was washed, but not "freshly" cleaned in the sense that it was done recently. What if the shirts hadn't been worn after being laundered in March or even September? Is there a time limit to the idea of "freshly laundered" or is it strictly a function of "not having been worn"?
Since there is at least one other way of making clothes "not freshly washed" without wearing them (by laying them on the floor, even without trampling on them - Shulchan Aruch w/Mishnah Berurah 551:3, Piskei Tshuvos 551:17), could 'time elapsed' constitute a valid way to make clothes wearable?
