Inventory and Security Tags on Clothing

Some garmets when purchased contain sewn in inventory control and security tags that are meant to be removed prior to consumer purchase.

Some manufacturerers such as Banana Republic, Gap, DKNY, Ann Taylor-Loft, J.Crew, Talbots, Jones New York, Ellen Tracy and many others often use them.

These tags contain a black resinous substance that can dissolve and transfer onto the garment or other garments in the same load.  These stains and discolorations are very difficullt to remove.

Due to this, we make every effort to inspect the garment inside and out prior to wash.
