It is often complained that the clothes have not been washed a few times and they are distorted. Have you ever thought about it, maybe your cleaning method is wrong!
The label on the clothes is not just a description of the ingredients, it is also the instructions for the clothes, which tells you in detail how to maintain the care. Ignoring these icons may lead to improper cleaning, which will cause your clothes to shrink, fading and even break.
Today we will introduce the meaning of the icons on these clothing labels in detail, so that you can clean all kinds of clothing scientifically and effectively.
If you see a laundry tub icon on the clothes label, it means that the clothes can be washed normally. If there is a prohibited sign on the laundry tub, it means that the clothes can't be washed, only dry cleaned or simply cleaned. In addition, the logo of the laundry tub usually does not appear alone, and generally it is combined with other icons to represent different meanings.
For example, if there is a number in the basin, it is the highest water temperature for cleaning the garment. Marking "30" means that it can only be cleaned in water temperatures below 30 °C. In addition, if a dot appears in the basin, it also means the cleaning temperature, one point means that it can only be cleaned with cold water; two points indicate that warm water can be used, and three points represent hot water.
In addition, a horizontal line appears below the washtub icon, which represents the way to clean the clothes. If there is no horizontal line, you can use this washing machine to clean the clothes. If a horizontal line appears, it means that you need to use the mild mode of the washing machine to clean, otherwise it will damage the clothes. The more horizontal lines, the softer it is to clean. If a hand appears in the washtub, it means you need to wash the garment by hand instead of using a washing machine.
Just like the symbol of the laundry tub, if the icon of the iron appears, it means that the garment can be ironed, and if there is a prohibition symbol on the iron logo, it means that the garment cannot be ironed.
In addition, there may be dots on the iron, which represents the proper temperature for ironing clothes. Three points indicate that the clothes can be ironed at a high temperature (about 200 ° C), while one point represents a low heat mode (about 110 ° C) that can only be used with the iron.
In general, the dryer logo on the clothing label is a circle with a square outside, but there are also special cases where there is only one circle. If a prohibited sign is drawn on the dryer icon, it means that the clothes may shrink and deform due to heat. Under normal conditions, it is necessary to dry and dry naturally.
At the same time, there may be dots in the middle of the dryer icon. One dot indicates that the laundry can be dried by normal heat, and two points indicate that the laundry can be dried at a high temperature. In addition, if you see the color dryer icon, it means that the item needs to be dried in a low-temperature, non-heating mode.
Most people think that as long as it is white clothes, it can be bleached. But this is not the case. Many garments are not suitable for bleaching, so look at the washing labels before bleaching.
If a hollow triangle appears, it means that it can be used normally. If a triangle with lines appears, it means that the garment can be bleached, but non-chlorine bleach is used. If a triangle with a solid prohibition symbol appears, you should try to avoid contact with the bleach.
If a circle with an alphabetic symbol appears on the washing label of the garment, do not throw it into the washing machine at will. These icons represent the need for professional cleaning of the clothes.
Among them, the F in the circle means that the clothing should be cleaned with a hydrocarbon solvent (HCS), P means that the solvent should be cleaned with a tetrachloroethylene solvent, and W stands for professional wet washing. But no matter which icon, you can't operate the cleaning at home. So you should bring your clothes to the laundry, and these icons will tell the clerk how to wash your clothes.
