Clothing care instructions: Love them or hate them?

The Federa Trade Commission (FTC) is seeking public comments about its regulations on Care Labeling of Textile Wearing Apparel (16 CFR Part 423).

Current regulations detail when care label instructions need to be included, such as the criteria for including a water temperature or bleaching warning. The FTC wants public opinion on the benefits, costs, and necessity of these regulations, and welcomes suggestions for modifying these regulations.

The request for public comments appeared in the July 13, 2011 issue of the Federal Register. Comments will be accepted until September 6, and can be made by mail or using the FTC's online comment form.
