Reading the secret code


Pretty much every article of clothing we own has a tag. It contains either verbal instructions or symbols. I am writing this to help you decipher the laundry label symbols successfully and save you from potential laundry disasters.

Proper care for your garments adds many years of life to them. Basically there are 6 categories that address machine wash, bleach, drying, ironing and dry cleaning recommended procedures.  The most important symbols out of these all are the DO NOT DO THIS ones. Not everything can survive a tumble dryer, not everything should be machine washed.



Next time you do the laundry – pay attention to the symbols on the tags and your clothes will thank you for this.
