LAUNDRY SYMBOLS EXPLAINED

All laundry symbols have a specific meaning so, we have put together all the symbols together to help you.


DRY CLEANING

  • If the care label has a small circle the manufacture is stating you must dry clean this item.
  • If there is a little letter inside the circle it’s indicating to the dry cleaner what chemical to use.
  • The more bars underneath the circle indicate the level of precaution the dry cleaner must take.
  • If there is a cross over the circle symbol you should not dry clean the item.

IRONING

  • Your item can be ironed at any temperature if the care label iron symbol has no dots.
  • The more dots on the iron symbol suggests the temperature of heat that can be applied:
    • 1 dot: delicates i.e, silk and wool.
    • 2 dots: synthetics.
    • 3 dots: linen and cotton.
  • If there is a cross over the iron symbol you should not iron the item.

DRYING

  • If the care label has a circle inside a square, your item can be tumble dried.
  • The more dots on the iron symbol suggests the temperature of heat that can be applied:
    • 1 dot = low temperature
    • 2 dots = medium temperature
    • 3 dots = high temperature
  • If there is a cross over the tumble dry symbol, you should not tumble dry the item.

HAND WASHING

  • If the care label has a tub with a hand, your item can be hand washed or put in a delicate washing cycle of 40°C/104°F, or lower.
  • Hand washing is better suited for delicate items, like cashmere or silk, because the wash is gentle preventing shrinking or snagging.
  • If the care label has a twisted symbol, your item can be wrung.
  • If the care label has a cross over the twisted symbol you should not wring the item.

SYNTHETIC WASHING

  • Your item can be washed in the washing machine if your care label has a tub symbol.
  • The number on the tub symbol indicates the maximum temperature that can be applied.
  • The more bars underneath the tub indicates a reduction of spinning and rinsing:
    • No bar: The item can be spun and rinsed as normal.
    • 1 bar: Spin speed should be reduced.
    • 2 bars: Mild wash but can be spun and rinsed as normal.
  • If there is a cross over the tub symbol you should not wash the item.
