Here’s the thing… clothing care symbols are pesky little buggers.
There are so many of them; some have the smallest of variations (that actually can mean very different things); and unless you have a savvy washer in your life, you probably weren’t taught what each of these symbols actually means.
But… if you’re interested in keeping clothing for an extended period of time, it’s important to carefully follow the wash instructions.
And… if you want only to have the easiest-to-wash clothes, clothing care symbols can help you make quick purchasing decisions. (Can you believe we’ve seen clothing items that have both the do not wash and do not dry clean symbols?!? What the? Back on the rack those items go!)
When we came across this easy-to-follow clothing care symbols diagram, we knew we needed to share it with you.
You can use the diagram below to memorize the symbols that are most important to you or use it for reference when you need it. (We’ve got the it pinned on Pinterest so we can find it on a whim.)
We hope you find it as useful as we do!
