clothing care instruction

Some garments, usually the finer ones, needs some extra care when they get dirty. Some of them should not be machine washed while others must be taken to the dry-cleaners for a chemical treatment.
These symbols tells you what extra precautions need to be taken when cleaning the garment.
The machine wash symbol is usually combined with the temperature and cycle marks below.
When you stumble upon a hand wash symbol it means the clothing is too delicate to stand the somewhat rough environment in the washing machine and you have to wash it by hand. Some modern washing machines have special hand wash programs that will allow washing delicates, like wool, in the machine, just check the user guide of your washer for directions.
A do not wash symbol means that piece of clothing shouldn’t be washed in water, not even hand washed. The do not wash symbol is usually accompanied by a dry cleaning symbol that tells the dry cleaner what dry cleaning processes are
