Tag, you're it

Is it just me, or are care tags becoming more complicated?  See this one?  This one is simple.  I can read it, I can understand it, and I can successfully follow it.

Here is a care tag that doesn't want to take responsibility. You do what you want, but it's probably best if you don't do anything and send this to the dry cleaner.

Then there are the symbols.  Oh my goodness, the symbols.
Confused yet?

Here's the deal. I have a few things that need to be drycleaned.  The rest must survive the wash or they can't live here with me, although I don't mind the odd load in the gentle cycle.  Silk goes in the washer.  Wool sweaters go in the washer.  Yes, even cashmere.  I'm the fabric whisperer - I touch it and determine what it needs.  So far I haven't lost a garment.  Well, except that white tee that came out pink after sloshing around in the washer with the colors.  There is no care tag made that could have prevented that.

Anything that must be laundered with tennis balls is not something I want in my wardrobe.

The thought of putting a tennis ball in with my nice clothes is horrifying!

I want to know what article of clothing that tag was on! Craaaaazy. I know that some of my tags go on in so many different languages (oh, Zara!) that it takes a good 5 minutes to figure out what I'm supposed to do.
