Knock! Knock! It's the Mattress Tag Police!

I don't know if anyone has told you,
but there is NOT a police squad that
will arrest you if you remove your
tags from your soft goods.
You might not think that it is important
to remove them from your pillow
inserts, but there is nothing
that I notice more than the feel of
that tag when you sit
with a pillow if it is still attached.
It's like the
 Princess and The Pea
 What the tag is made of
is not soft and will not get softer
even after washing or
the longer it is left on.
Some tickets even make
a "crinkle" sound.
But, just don't rip it off, 
take the time to cut it
carefully so the seam doesn't 
opens to let out your 
So that's my public service
announcement on this
Don't get caught with your 
tags hanging out.
Have a great week.


  1. That took a lot of years before we knew that.

  2. Ha! I have always been a rebel and cut off the tags!!

  3. Well said! It's about time someone shed the light on this issue! Jane's right folks! This isn't just a bunch of fluff! I take the tags off of pillow inserts for sale in my shop. Who wants to squish a crinkly pillow?

  4. I am old enough to remember before they added "except by consumer".
    I still see jean size tags, always unflattering, and only on men, of course.
