a garment that had a care label stating “Spot Clean Only.” Is this a valid care
label? How should I handle this garment?
Trade Commission considers this a valid care label. The label says that the
garment cannot be immersed in a solvent. This may be due to the trim that is
part of the dress design. The label indicates that only localized stain removal
procedures should be used. This may be difficult or impossible to do without
leaving rings on certain fabrics. Local stain removal may also cause rings on
garments by disturbing the dyes or sizing.
would be a good idea to discuss the possible problems with your customer before
