Description of Garment:
Off-white Printed Skirt..
Manufacrueer: Narcisco Rodriguez
RN#: Not available.
Problem: When this skirt was drycleaned in perchlorethylene, wrinkles formed in the fabric. This condition could not be corrected.
Responsibility: The manufacturer's. This fabric contains a heat-sensitive resinous coating. When drycleaned and reclaimed, the coating shrank, while the fabric retained its dimensions. This resulted in the distortion (wrinkling) of the fabric.
Recommendation: If this skirt fails when drycleaned according to the care label instructions., it should be returned to its place of purchase for a refund or exchange.
Drycleaner: Because of the potential serviceability issues concerning this skirt, a signed release of liability should be obtained prior to its acceptance for processing. Because of the heat-sensitive nature of the coating, it is our opinion that the temperatures generated during the reclamation cycle in any solvent type will damage the fabric.
The NCA's Garment Analysis Laboratory examines thousands of garments every year for serviceability and FTC care labeling accuracy. The featured garment is a recurring item received for evaluation and, in testing, has failed to meet minimum industry standards. We have included the name or trade name of the fabric, the manufacturer, the RN number, if available, and a brief description of the problem.
