The current care labeling requirements need to address the new process of professional wet-cleaning. Like washing or solvent instructions these need to specify accepted procedures and modifications in this category. Educating the consumer as to what the symbols mean would help the avoid mistreating their garment or item.A database for reporting insufficient or incorrect labeling problems should be established electronically so consumers can do research if a problem occurs. Some penalty for inaccurate contact information should be assessed as well as continual mislabeling problems.
