Lost in translation...

From a garment-care tag acquired god-knows-when and recently unearthed in the post-project desk excavation - I figured I needed to share -

FRONT

it says LIAN LIN, and MADE IN CHINA

so far, so good

here's where the fun starts

BACK (and I quote verbatim, spelling syntax and all, with the exception of the garment care symbols which I cannot reproduce here)

Qualified certificate

Composition: personslk 70%, 30% nylan

Composition: An etc: Article

1. An expert hand washes, dry cleaning

2. can't use to contain lvb bleach

3. Doing not want the pubasks

4. The low temperature yunis very hot

Place: Manufacturing in China


Inquiring minds want to know what a yunis is, and whether it should be hot or cold, and what pubasks have to do with soaking the garment (presumably one shouldn't do it in beer) and why the garment can't be used to contain bleach...

Sorry. Had to throw that out there. Before I finally discard the funny label itself.
