Laundry Day Reads Washing Symbols On Clothes So You Don’t Have To

iOS: Doing the laundry can be confusing if you don’t know what all those symbols on your clothes mean. Why does this bucket have two lines under it? What’s the triangle with two stripes? Just fire up your iPhone and let Laundry Day sort it out for you.

Sure, you could learn what laundry symbols mean, but like Steve Jobs said, there’s an app for that. With Laundry Day open, point the camera at the label with the washing instructions. Tap the screen to scan the symbols, and the app will then tell you how you should or shouldn’t wash and dry the clothes.

Laundry Day even worked well with older, faded labels in our test. But just in case it can’t read the label, there’s a full chart of all symbols that you can refer to. For just a buck, this app can help you breeze through your laundry like a boss.
