Shirt tags

OK, this may be a dumb question, but does anyone know if there's some sort of law or something that requires clothing manufacturers to put those little tags on shirt collars?? I just HATE them -- maybe I have super-sensitive skin or something, but those tags actually make the back of my neck hurt. I usually end up cutting the tags off all my shirts. If I leave a little bit of the tag or thread behind, that's enough to irritate my skin.

I'm really not a wuss-girl or anything like that -- it's just those damn tags REALLY bother me!!!! Can they not be put on the bottom of the shirt, or on the side?? Or can't more manufacturers do what some do and actually print the tag info directly onto the shirt??

When you've got something in your teeth that refuses to budge, you use anything you can get your hands on that remotely resembles dental floss!!

Happy to help :D

Pulling on threads or tags can be dangerous!! I was at a wedding last month and got something stuck between my front teeth. I thought maybe I could find something in the car to get it out with -- no luck. Then I remembered that I had a loose thread on the inside of my jacket. I pulled it out and used it like floss -- luckily for me, nothing came apart!!

I really wish all clothes manufacturers would use those stamp-on "tags." They can send those rovers to Mars, you'd think they could make a better clother tag!! And envelopes that don't taste gross when you lick them....

I was at a wedding and the darn dress tag was driving me bananas. I went in the washroom and tried to rip it off, ripped my dress in the process and had to drive home and change. When I came back my husband didn't even notice I had left and come back with another outfit. I love this man!!! I can sneak anything into the house, frame a bat on the wall, if I wanted to, and he wouldn't notice a thing.
