Solve the Mystery of Laundry Tags

Kiersten Bush is my guest blogger this week.

Laundry is a chore, but there’s no way around it. There is, however, a better way to do laundry, one that will save your clothes, save your appliances, and save your energy. To do that, it’s necessary to get to know your clothes a little bit better by studying the tags.

Tags aren’t just a window into the fabric makeup of your clothing. Every tag has to have certain care information that tells you what temperature water, what wash cycle, and what dry time to care for your clothes. Those same tags also tell you whether or not laundry additives like bleach are appropriate, or whether you should skip self-wash and self-dry altogether and go straight to the dry cleaner. Use this infographic to learn more about the right way to do your laundry. How to read laundry tags

    • That has happened to me , where after the first wash the item is wrecked. I read the label on the garment carefully so I know it is a kind of fabric that is wash, wear and no ironing. i like to keep things simple.

  1. I have to admit that my laundry skills are much more basic…with not a lot (or almost no) ironing going on. Doing laundry IS a major issue for many of my clients. It’s not just how to wash things (and the chart you shared is great!), but the process of washing, drying, folding, ironing and putting away. It can cause overwhelm, especially in households with active adults and kids.

    • I agree. When someone wants their laundry room organized it is most often about the system of collecting the dirty clothes, getting it to the laundry room and then folded, hung and back to the bedroom that is the stumbling block. The less steps that are needed in the process the easier it is to be successful at completing your laundry
