»Problem: When drycleaned in perchloroethylene, both the black and blue dyestuffs became fugitive and migrated onto the white portion of the dress, causing discolorations that cannot be corrected.
»Responsibility: The manufacturer’s. Because of the solvent-soluble nature of the dyestuffs, this dress proved to be unserviceable when drycleaned in accordance with its care label instructions.
»Recommendation: If the above-mentioned damage occurs when this dress is drycleaned as instructed by the care label, it should be returned to the place of purchase for a refund or exchange. While we don’t have any data concerning the serviceability of this dress in alternate solvents, we are of the opinion that there is a possibility that this dress may fail in any solvent type.
