|I bought a scarf from Zara earlier this year, and noticed that the care label said simply 'Do not wash'.|
Which I thought was pretty daft, but it was only a scarf, so I kind of forgot about it.
However, recently I was in the shop again and saw other items, including skirts, with the same label. Not 'dry clean only' - just 'don't wash'.
Which is bizarre, no? Clothes need washed. The scarf, I suspect, would be fine if I handwashed it - but who knows? And it was quite cheap - if I spent more than that, on a skirt for example, I'd be really nervous. Is this just a shop's way of getting out of any responsibility if things shrink/ warp when they're washed?
It's shocking, really - not only is it wasteful, financially, to buy new clothes when the old ones get dirty, but it's pretty un-environmentally-sound.
Has anyone seen this in other shops? Is it a trend, or is Zara just odd?
