Learn All Those Complicated Laundry Instructions With This Handy Chart

Ever look on a clothing tag for laundry instructions only to find a bunch of hieroglyph-like symbols that you can’t decipher? Primer Magazine has a simple chart that shows you what each one means.

Most of them are pretty easy to understand: a crossed out iron means “do not iron”, a crossed out dryer means “do not tumble dry” and so on. Other symbols are more confusing: a circle means “dry clean”, a triangle means “bleach”, and three dots means “high heat” inside of whatever other symbol is present.
