What's the BAR for ?

w/e 30/08/16

It's always worth searching for the care and fabric content labels when buying clothes or furnishings, no matter how well they're hidden, as they give specific advice on how a garment must be cared for. Where these are difficult or impossible to follow you should avoid buying the product, even if you fall in love with it at first sight. That's especially true if it's an expensive item or if you're matching things like furnishings, such as curtains with your settee etc.

Care labels are now almost universal but there's no legal requirement for UK manufacturers or retailers to put one in a garment. However, if there is one the manufacturer has a duty to ensure it is correct, but this doesn't necessarily guarantee that they are.

Naturally, if you buy an expensive designer garment you expect it to be fully tested by the manufacturer. This should include testing for colour runs from both the fabric and any accessories (such as buttons, trim and belts), for stitch density and evenness and that the cloth is both the weight and has the fibre content indicated. However, that isn't often the case as retailers, including some expensive designer labels, rarely have good quality control departments making the relevant checks.

One thing's certain you should know what these labels mean as they may indicate problems with cleaning that should affect your decision to buy a garment in the first place. Here's a few that often show up:

Wash at the temperature indicated with reduced mechanical action.
Wash at the indicated temperature with a very reduced mechanical action, such as in a wool cycle.
Both the P, A and the F symbols relate to dry cleaning. The letter in the circle tells you if there are any restrictions on the solvent that can be used and the bar lets you know that there are further restrictions to consider.

A means - Cleanable in any commercially available solvent
P means - Cleanable in solvent 113, Hydrocarbon or Perchloroethylene
F means - Cleanable in solvent 113 or Hydrocarbon

The bar gives the process the following restrictions:

  1. Reduce the mechanical action.
  2. Limit moisture.
  3. Reduce solvent temperature.
  4. Reduce Drying cycle temperature

Hand Wash Only
If you follow the suggested washing instructions or use a professional cleaner then you will be covered for any damage or alterations in the garment that occurs during cleaning. That includes colour bleeding, surface changes, delamination of fusible interlinings and excessive shrinkage - probably over 5% of the garments original size. If you don't follow the instructions you have no protection.
