When a care label describes a cleaning process which includes “except for trim,” how should the garment be cleaned?

Unless the care label describes what must be done with trim, the label does not meet the legal requirements for garment care labels, and should not be purchased. If the garment is purchased and worn it should be returned to the retailer. At times, trim can be removed, for additional cost, then reassembled. Low Country Laundry may ask the customer for a release recognizing possible problems in cleaning.
