I never really thought how difficult it would be to read the labels on clothes on how to wash them. It never occurred to me that discussions could be started on, and even debated about "How do you hand wash?" and "What does a cold hand wash mean?". Have we become too dependent on the use of the washing machine and technology?
Anyways, here's a pretty useful link about the labels on clothes and what they mean. http://www.textileaffairs.com/c-common.htm
