Please, keep the care labels simple. Today's consumer doesn't understand the care label symbols. Example: I was watching "Who Wants To Be A Millionaire" about 2 weeks ago. The contestant was going for $100,000. The question was, "On a clothing "Care Label", what does a circle with an X through it mean?" He didn't know, so he asked the audience for assistance. Only 11% of the audience had the correct answer. 37% thought it was a wash symbol. Needless to say, the contestant chose to take his $50,000 without answering the question. He had no faith in the audience either. Something to think about, "Professoinally Wetclean". Consumers think "Dryell" (sorry P&G) is home "Dry Cleaning". Are they going to try their home "Wetcleaning" as "Professional". Please, just keep it simple and help us educate the consumer.
