fabric care suggestions are provided as a general
guide for the convenience of our customers and
visitors. Because materials and dyes vary between
manufacturers and products, generally, the best
rule is to follow the care instructions on the
manufacturer's label. If there is no label and/or
you wish to wash a garment or fabric at home instead
of dry clean, the properties of each fabric will
help you determine the care of the fabric or garment.
