Caroline Rose Blouse

Description of Garment:

 White Blouse w/ Leather Trimming

Manufacturer: Caroline Rose

RN#: Not available

Care Label Instructions: "Dry Clean Only"

Problem: When drycleaned in perchloroethylene, the black dyestuffs from the leather trimming became fugitive and transferred onto the blouse causing discolorations that cannot be corrected.

Responsibility: The manufacturer's. This blouse proved to be unserviceable when drycleaned in accordance with its care label instructions. This is due to the solubility of the leather dyes in perchloroethylene.

Recommendation: If this blouse fails when drycleaned as instructed by the care label, it should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange.

Drycleaner: Since there may be a potential serviceability issue concerning this blouse, we suggest that a signed release of liability be obtained prior to its acceptance for processing.

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.
