The laundry care symbols on clothing and linen labels provide important information on how to take care of your investment. These labels are mandated by the government to identify the fiber content of the fabric and provide care instructions.
Most manufacturers recommend a conservative treatment of the fabric to ensure the best results for the consumer. For instance, some fabrics that are labeled as dry clean can be hand washed. This is why it is important to note the fiber content and learn more so you can make an informed laundry decision.
The international community uses basic symbols for washing, drying, bleaching, ironing and dry cleaning. Once you learn the basic shapes, interpreting the rest is pretty simple.
