The care label on clothing

1. Hand Wash: The garment should be gently washed by hand in water, using a mild detergent. Avoid rubbing or wringing the garment.


2. Machine Wash: The garment can be washed in a washing machine. The number inside the symbol indicates the maximum temperature at which the garment can be washed.


3. Do Not Wash: The garment should not be washed. This may be indicated with a cross through the washing symbol. Instead, follow the instructions for dry cleaning or other specific care methods.


4. Dry Clean: The garment should be taken to a professional dry cleaner for cleaning. The letter inside the symbol indicates the type of solvents that can be used.


5. Do Not Dry Clean: The garment should not be dry cleaned. This may be indicated with a cross through the dry cleaning symbol. Instead, follow the instructions for washing or other specific care methods.


6. Bleach: The garment can be bleached. The symbols may indicate whether chlorine bleach or non-chlorine bleach should be used. If there is a cross through the bleach symbol, do not use bleach on the garment.


Always refer to the care label on your clothing for specific instructions, as different garments may have different care requirements.
