Do you really believe that we as Americans have become so sophisticated that we no longer need the care labels? This is what is missing from the tagless garments. So far I have only seen this style on cotton material, like underwear or t-shirts. I do not know that it is on other materials such as silk, satin, rayan, polyester, and what have you. So if all garments become tagless will we have to go to the internet to learn to care for our clothes? Will that be a class? Or will we suddenly memorize all the care labels. Perhaps we can just put everything that is not cotton in the cleaners and have it professionally done. What do you think?

Wow Rozie I thought that clothing had to have care labels on them so that if you were to shrink it or something through putting it in the wrong cycle or putting it in the dryer when you weren't meant to then the company wouldn't be liable. You would think that if you were to wash something wrong that had no care label you could take it back to the shop for a full cash refund as it could be considered faulty. What was it you found with no care label? I do know now that alot of clothing companys are just starting to print the labels right onto the clothing but obviously in the inside.

The ones that are printed directly on the garmet are called tagless. There are no care labels on the other side. For instance, my underwear do not say, wash in cold or hot water. Nor does it say, do not bleach. So I am assuming they expect us to already know what to do and what not to do.

Well Rozie, I feel different than you do... I hate the darn tags. Strange though, for years and years they never bothered me till the past two years then all of the sudden they started to drive me crazy and I've had to have hubby cut quite a few off or I'd have gone bonkers! lol However, since the companies have been putting imprints on the inside of the garment, they should put the rest of the information down too.

Oh no, I do not miss the tags at all. Just the information that they contained. Believe me I have ripped and cut my share of tags over the years. I don't know how many tops I have actually torn, trying to get the tags out.

We could always go back to old fashioned hand washing in freezing cold water to be on the safe side. I'm picky though, and won't buy clothes unless they have the care instruction tags on them.
