Laundry symbols explained!

Laundry symbols scanner

A jumble of ancient hieroglyphs? A secret coded message? We understand some of the washing symbols are difficult to understand, that is why we built a scanner to help you out! Every item of clothing has up to five symbols on the washing label, letting you know how to care for it and maximise the life of your clothing. Clever, right? 

To make understanding laundry symbols quick and easy, we have designed a simple to use Wash Label Scanner.
