Ever wonder what those funny symbols mean on the care label

What do those crazy symbols mean?

Many of today’s garments have care labels with symbols that may appear to be hieroglyphics to some.  These labels give the consumer and the Professional Dry Cleaner invaluable information about the care required to keep your garment in like new condition for as long as possible.  Some labels have only these symbols.  Other will have a combination of symbols and text to help you understand what is the best way to care for your clothes.

An industry standard for these symbols is available on line at http://www.textileaffairs.com/lguide.htm. The first page of this guide just categorizes the labels. Click on the individual cleaning methods for more detailed symbols.
