Dry Clean Only Label

Dry Clean Only Label

I was very pleased with myself today. Having driven to the Trafford centre near Manchester, first thing in the morning to avoid the traffic and crowds, I managed to find some smart / casual trousers that fit me like a glove. They were the first and only pair of trousers that I tried, so this was quite a good result.

When I got them home – shock horror – I took a look at the label and found that they shouldn’t be washed or ironed – just dry cleaned!

There is no way on earth that I am going to take these pants to the dry cleaners when they need to be cleaned – it’s just not going to happen!

After doing some research on the internet, I have found a lot of posts suggesting that many manufacturers put the “dry clean only” label on clothes just to cover themselves.

Other posts have been posted to say that clothes have been ruined, so I am going to try washing this garment quite a few times and post my experience on the blog. Just to clarify, these trousers are 100% cotton.

I will take some measurements of the garment as new and record more measurements after each wash.

Signs of fading will also be monitored etc.
