The FTC Wants to Hear From You About Your Clothes
Aside from the fact that it sometimes pokes you in the back of your neck, how are you feeling about the “Instructions for Care” label on that shirt you just bought? Not sure what to do with the instruction “Do Not Wash”? Having trouble deciphering the funny symbols? Well, now is your chance to have your voice heard!
The document also includes compelling bits of trivia, such as the fact that the labeling requirement was introduced in 1971. Makes sense, given that the 60s were all about cultural revolution — not to mention awesome but tricky-to-wash threads. Oh, and did you know that the federal government’s definition of “cold,” “warm,” and “hot” water officially changed in 2000? Now there’s something to file away.
