Description / Abstract:

This guide may be used to determine and confirm the appropriate care label instructions for apparel, piece goods, and other textile products excluding textile floor coverings and upholstery.

This guide encompasses the following care procedures: home laundering, professional textile care, and other alternative cleaning methods.

This guide includes provision for evaluating the complete textile product and the product components.

This guide covers the performance characteristics as a result of refurbishing that are important in determining the acceptability of a textile product.

This guide is appropriate for the evaluation of all garments and household textiles that are sold with care labels.

This guide may also be used in connection with the evaluation of similar materials that do not have a care label.

This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to establish appropriate safety, health, and environmental practices and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use.

This international standard was developed in accordance with internationally recognized principles on standardization established in the Decision on Principles for the Development of International Standards, Guides and Recommendations issued by the World Trade Organization Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committee.
