Today we are looking at the next set of symbols; Washing Temperatures & Machine Settings.
Washing temperatures play a crucial role in not only color preserving your clothes, but also helping conserve energy.
This bring me to the first set of symbols. We have Cold, Warm and Hot.
Cold Wash Cycle
Prevents Color Fading
Saves Energy (no energy used to heat water)
Warm Wash Cycle
Fights Tough Stains (added heat helps loosen up the stain)
Saves Some Energy
Hot Wash Cycle
Color Can Fade
Many Fabrics will Shrink
You will need to make sure you are correctly machine washing your clothes. With the new fancy washer and dryers these days who even knows which setting is best?? The washing tags do;)
Normal Wash Setting
The symbol is a normal wash.
Super simple and easy.
Permanent Press Setting
Do you actually know what Permanent Press means? I didn’t so I looked it up… It’s a wrinkle control setting used to help remove or reduce wrinkles in wrinkle-prone clothing like polyester, nylon, acrylic, rayon, and knitwear. These are non-iron fabrics.
Delicate Cycle Setting
Don’t let Permanent Press confuse you as a delicate cycle, though. If you see this symbol then it’s best to wash these items on a delicate cycle to prevent damage.
