The Garment: A black, tan and cream dress made from a blend of polyester, rayon & spandex. The care label simply states: “dry clean” with the corresponding International Code Symbol.
The Problem:Tests show that during proper professional drycleaning in any approved cleaning solution the black fabric dye bleeds, resulting in transfer of black color onto the lighter fabric panels.
Who’s Responsible?The manufacturer since the black base fabric was not able to withstand any drycleaning method without bleeding, fading and adverse dye migration.
