Here is what you need to know when it comes to laundry symbols. The international textile association and International Standards Organization (ISO) recognize four many care categories including washing, bleaching, drying and ironing. Dry cleaning instructions are often added as a fifth symbol.
Dots are often added in order to indicate heat or temperature
Colors or Crosses indicate go or no go for the indicated care
When it comes to stepping up your laundry game convenience and practicality trump all else. As such, a handy idea for treating your clothes right is to grab a Sharpie and create your own laundry code. Bold, quickly recognizable marks that will be noticed in a laundry heap
A large black slash for anything that shouldn’t go in the dryer
A Red circle for anything that should be hand washed
Turn your garments inside out before throwing them in to your laundry basket and do up all the zipper and buttons. Not only will washing from the inside out protect the most visible surface, most grime from creams, sweat and so on collect on the inside of the fabric making it the area that needs a good clean.
