Little Annoying Things

by Kay~Kacey on 3/4/2009

Remember when I was annoyed about the extra packaging on my favorite face lotion? Yes, well….here is another thing that ticks me off.
scratchy-tags

Scratchy tags.  Really, do these companies think anyone in the whole wide world likes scratchy tags in their clothes?

tags-and-scissors

But, never fear. I will prevail. I meticulously take out every tiny little thread holding those scratchy tags on my sweaters. Which annoys me no end to have to do this. Especially if I accidentally severe one of the sweater threads in the process!

tags-gone

But, in the end, I win. No more scratchy tags.

Just another one of those little annoying things in life that just doesn’t have to exist. You hear me garment industry???

You gonna come over and cut all my scratchy tags off next?

I, too, hate scratchy tags and refuse to wear anything that has them. I always have to remove them. When companies started making tagless clothes (like t-shirts & underwear *g* ) I was so happy!

I find those to be annoying as well. Before wearing new clothes I always cut the tags out.

I am SO with you on this. Who do they think is going to see that tag once it’s sold? sheesh.

Yep…I agree 100%.

Oh, I hear you sister. I’ve cut holes in several tops while cutting off the tags.

My problem with the garment tags is the washing instructions. I hate it when they have those symbols — the triangle with the line though it… etc. What the hell does that mean? It’s bad enough when I can’t read the print (it’s too small without my glasses) but I’m totally lost when it comes to those symbols. :???:

You are so right! :cursin: And a close second are those annoying price and/or barcode tags that don’t come off easily – I’ve found the miracle remover is plain Lighter Fluid and a close second is Rubbing Alcohol!

I’ve always removed those darn tags. Another thing is how do they expect us to read instructions on those little itty bitty tags?

Oohhhh I HATE scratchy tags! They’re my nemisis…

Save your tops when removing tags by using specialty needlework scissors here is an example:
1) Scissors – Boo Boo Snips
Simply slide the fine-pointed tip under the stitches to be removed, lift them away from the fabric and snip. http://www.nordicneedle.com/PROD/E17-00-00/7209.html

2) Curved Tip Lift And Snip in Case
3-1/2″ curved tip lift and snip scissors in a pouch. The fine, curved tip on these scissors is more efficient for removing stitches. Superb quality!” http://www.nordicneedle.com/PROD/E17-00-00/7251.html

I have both and swear by them to make quick snips without risking the sweater or garment.
