    1.2 This terminology provides a uniform language for the disclosure of care instructions on labels that are to be attached to apparel, textile, home furnishing, and leather products according to the Federal Trade Commission’s regulation 16 CFR, Part 423 (See 2.3).

    1.3 These terms, definitions and descriptions employ common meanings for the care instructions required to be on textile products sold in the U.S.
