Understanding Common Clothing Care Labels

Federal laws require manufacturers to list at least one method of cleaning, even though a garment may be cleaned many ways.  At Flair, we believe it’s important to understand the best way to care for your clothes. 

·  “Dry Clean Only or Dry Clean For Best Results” labels indicate the need to use a professional cleaner, like Flair Cleaners.  Wool, silk and acetate fabrics are most appropriate for dry cleaning as well as fine knit suits and most sweaters.  Also, any fabric trimmed in suede or leather, or embellished with beads, pearls, rhinestones or sequins.

·  While garments labeled “Machine Wash” can be cleaned at home, a professional dry cleaner’s processes protect the texture, reduce fabric wear and tear, and minimize color fading and bleeding. 

·  “Hand Wash” labels specify that garments should be soaked and gently rinsed without machines or harsh detergents. 

At Flair, we’ve developed professional dry cleaning and laundering techniques to make sure clothes are gently cleaned, stains are treated, and clothes are returned in pristine condition.  For more information, to find a location near you, or to sign up for coupons via our newsletter, visit http://www.flaircleaners.com/ or find us on Facebook.
