  1. I can’t stop laughing.., many is the time I’ve removed one of those suckers because it scratched.., but somehow a tiny piece always seems to remain to continue its mission. Aren’t there softer labels?


      1. I once cut a hole in a favorite nightgown when I reached over my should in frustration to cut a particularly aggravating one out of the cotton material. I was lucky I didn’t cut out a hank of hair in the process.


        1. I’ve torn big holes out of dresses. I try to remove the tags before I go out, but sometimes, I forget. It’s such a silly thing. Why not make them removable so you don’t have those itchy edge things leftover even when you’ve tried to cut the label away? It’s dumb.

  2. I have found clothing with stamped-in labels, My Fruit of the Loom t-shirts are like that, and Old Navy puts them on things too. I’d think it would save companies a ton of money to not only not have to pay for the fabric to be cut and printed, but to pay stitchers just for label-attachments.
    I have a wonderful little tool called a stitch ripper with a wickedly pointed end, and the entire thing looks like a harpoon–you can wiggle it under the thread and cut it open, and then pick apart the rest of the threading. Takes awhile, but it’s worth the effort.

    1. Cheap companies use silk screening. Apparently it’s against the principles of “better” companies. I think it’s stupid, but I have never worried about labels. And anyway, I ONLY buy on sale. No full price anything.

      Now that you mention it, I have a seam ripper too. I think I will use it. The only problem is when the product is stretchy. They you can do a lot of damage anyway.
