Sexist cleaning instructions on shirt label has everyone up in arms

An Indonesian clothing company finds itself in the spin cycle over the outrageous and sexist laundry instructions it put on it’s labels.

“Give this jersey to your woman, it’s her job,” they instruct.

Whoa! The co-hosts on Fox News Channel’s “Outnumbered” had a few opinions on this one.


When social media exploded, the manufacturer, Salvo Sports Apparel, made matters worse by offering this:

“The message is simply, instead of washing it in the wrong way, you might as well give it to a lady because they are more capable,” the company explained, according to Fox News. “There is no intention to humiliate women. In contrast, [we want to tell the men] learn from women how to take care of clothes.”

Don’t you just love how they went from “your woman” to “a lady”?

“Who does this,” wondered Kirsten Powers. “And the explanation is even worse, I feel.”

Katie Pavlich thought it was funny. “I know it’s sexist,” she said, “but I think at this point it’s a joke.”

Harris Faulkner pleaded the Fifth.

“I’m silent on this one ‘cause I married a guy who does not do laundry,” she said. “In my household, it actually is my job, but I don’t want him wearing a t-shirt that says that.”
