What Those Symbols on Your Clothing Tags Mean

Last week, I ruined another one of my favorite shirts in the laundry.

Why? Too many symbols  on the care labels attached to my clothing–and not enough words.

Tired of laundry failures and wary of spending money on replacement clothing, I headed to Google. (Why didn’t I think of this before?!!)

Of course, it didn’t let me down, and my search pointed me to the American Cleaning Institute’s Guide to Fabric Care Symbols.

I’m pretty sure I’m not the only one with these types of laundry adventures, so I’m passing on my new-found knowledge.

Click here to download a PDF version of the guide. To make it even more useful, print it and pin it to the wall in your laundry room.

Here’s to better laundry days!
