A good way to wash many variants of modern clothes with up-to-date garment is actually Wet-cleaning. The method has been available for quite a long time although it has not been very well known by people in general.
In Europe the Professional Wet Cleaning label is implemented in the Care-label but very little adopted.
We therefore support your suggested change but also ask for some complementary ‘directive’ to make the garment manufactures really also use it. Otherwise there is a big risk that nothing will change.
