Care Instructions for Your Work Clothing

Caring for your work clothing is essential to maintain its quality and longevity. Here are some guidelines to ensure your garments stay in the best condition:

1. Washing Guidelines:

  • Follow the washing instructions and temperature indicated on the label.
  • We recommend washing dark and light colors separately to prevent color transfer.
  • Separate garments with different fiber content when washing.
  • Wash your work clothing frequently to extend its lifespan, especially to avoid heavy soiling.
  • Pay close attention to tumble drying instructions as per the symbol on the care label.
  • Most work clothing can be washed at 60 degrees Celsius (140 degrees Fahrenheit).

2. Drying Recommendations:

  • To prolong the life of your work clothing, avoid using tumble drying. Instead, allow the garments to air dry on a hanger.

3. Understanding Care Label Symbols:

  • Wash:

    • The number in the washing tub represents the maximum washing temperature in degrees Celsius.
    • The symbol permits both hand and machine washing unless stated otherwise.
    • A bar under the tub indicates a delicate cycle.
    • A double bar under the tub implies an extremely delicate cycle.
    • A hand in the tub signifies hand washing (not over 40°C).
    • A diagonal line through the tub means the product should not be washed under normal conditions.
  • Ironing:

    • The iron symbol is accompanied by up to three dots indicating the ironing temperature (one dot: 110°C, two dots: 150°C, three dots: 200°C).
    • An iron with a diagonal line through it indicates no ironing.
    • Exercise caution with steam and steam irons if there is only one dot.
  • Machine Dry:

    • A circle in a square indicates suitability for machine drying.
    • One dot suggests low-temperature drying.
    • Two dots indicate normal-temperature drying.
    • A diagonal line through the symbol means no machine drying.
  • Chemical Cleaning:

    • “P” or “F” in a circle represents solvents for professional chemical cleaning.
    • “P” is for perchloroethylene or petroleum naphtha.
    • “F” is for hydrocarbon-based solvents, especially petroleum naphtha/cleaning fluids.
  • Bleaching:

    • A blank triangle allows chlorine oxygen bleach.
    • Two diagonal lines in the triangle indicate the use of oxygen bleach.
    • A crossed-out triangle means no bleaching whatsoever, including laundry powders or liquids with bleach.

Note: Drying instructions apply to household drying conditions, not for professional textile washing/drying services.
