Care labeling should include Professional Wet Cleaning. The label should be in English with Internationally accepted Symbols. Those cleaners who do not speak/read English well should contact their own association for a translation of the International Symbols used on Care Labels. In other words, keep it simple, too the point and require all cleaners to be responsible for their ability to interpret the instructions of the garment manufacturers. Conversely, make manufacturers responsible for the instructions they put in all of their garments requiring Care Labels.
