Laundry Care Symbols and How to read them

These washing symbols are so jargon to some. They just knew one thing or two then pushed that fuzzy button. Getting the temperature and wash cycle right is as important as getting the laundry done – faster. 

Just remember, the laundry symbols are there to guide you in taking care of your clothes. It makes us sure to use the right laundry detergent for the wash cycle, the right temperature and right tempo.

Now let us one by one study (and somehow remember) the 4 phases of laundry symbols. They are like another type of language, those symbols are simple graphic labels that tell you exactly how to do the washing and drying, as well as important information on bleaching and ironing.

There are four type of Laundry Symbols:

  • Washing Symbols
  • Drying Symbols
  • Bleaching Symbols
  • Ironing Symbols

Washing Symbols

The wash symbols tell us how to be more careful in washing our garments. Notice the underscored lines indicating the most recommended cycle and black dots representing water temperature. Never forget the X mark warns us to not machine wash the garments at all.

Drying Symbols

Of course, these laundry symbols don’t just end up on how to wash your garments. So, know these valuable icons because they are ought to be remembered. You know, drying isn’t just as simple as hanging t-shirt under the sun.

With those icons, you’ll be able to determine which item should be air or tumble dried. The lines inside the square will tell you how an item should be air dried.

Just like the wash icons, the lines indicates something. And once again, if it has an ‘X’ that means no.

Bleaching Symbols

The triangle symbol means they are related to bleaching. This is a delicate symbol that you should notice and remember. Let’s dive in with each icons below!

Ironing Symbols

Ironing clothes might be something that is really a boring and challenging tasks. I know it’s ironic, but that’s just the truth. Dots inside the icon tell you which heat setting to use. If you see one dot inside of an iron icon, that means you need to use a low heat setting…Well, let’s make it easier to understand, here are the simple icons that would summarize everything about ironing.
