Please add a "Professional Wet Cleaning" instruction to your care labeling rule. More and more consumers are seeking Professional Wet Cleaners to clean their garments because they realize that it is the safest system in the market for not only themselves but also for the environment.
Consumers tend to regard the care labels as a mandate from the heavens and rarely deviate from its instructions, but properly trained experts know how to handle each garment according to its fabric and dye. This causes great confusion and distrust amongst consumers and their cleaners.
The unyielding, strong, and healthy growth of Professional Wet Cleaning in the U.S. necessitates more accurate care labeling for all.
