Guide To Ironing and Bleaching Symbols

Have your jumpers shrunk, your T-shirts bobble or your sleeves stretched out? If you fail to wash your clothes correctly, it costs money and causes stress. But for the majority of us, those symbols may as well be hieroglyphics. Don’t panic, though, because we have cracked the code and created a guide that will help you out.

Guide To Ironing and Bleaching Symbols  

These symbols can help to prevent colours from fading and ironing damage.


Triangle: The triangle symbol on the care label in an item of clothing means that bleaching is allowed.


Triangle with a cross: It follows, therefore, that the same shape with a cross through the middle means that the item of clothing should not be bleached.


Triangle with Diagonal Lines: Finally, a triangle with diagonal lines in it means that you can only use non-chlorine bleach on the garment.


Iron: The dots within the iron pictogram shows what temperature you should use when you iron the garment. A single dot means you should use a cool setting; two dots mean selecting a medium setting, and three dots mean that it is safe to iron the clothing with a hot iron.


Iron with a cross through it: As you have probably worked out, a cross through the iron means do not iron the garment.
