While some of the symbols are easy to understand, some are not; for example, did you know that the dots on the buckets indicate the temperature of the water for washing? Higher number of dots, hotter the water!
Fabrics to be washed at various temperatures for longer durability:
- Hemp – Cold
- Linen – 30-40 degree C
- Acrylic – 50-60 degree C
- Polyester – 50-60 degree C
- Spandex – Cold
The greater number of dots on the iron symbol the higher temperature required to press the fabric.
Here are some of the common fabrics and the right amount of heat required for the crease-free garment!
- Hemp – Steam + high temperature
- Cotton – High temperature may require steam
- Linen – Steam + high temperature
- Polyester – Steam + low temperature
- Silk – Steam + low temperature,Fabric should be inside out
