The figures in the wash-tub indicate the maximum washing temperature in degrees Celsius which must not be exceeded. The bar under the wash-tub requires milder treatment (gentle cycle). A double bar means a very mild treatment (mechanically), mostly for products made of wool (reducing amount of laundry).
The triangle indicates whether the product may be bleached or not. Please leave this to a professional textile cleaner.
A square is the symbol for the drying process. The circle within the square indicates the drying in a tumble dryer. The dots in the dryer drum indicate the amount of heat exposure. Preferably do not tumble dry if there is no explicit care label.
The dots indicate the temperature of an iron. Some irons assign certain fibers to these temperatures. Only choose the maximum temperatures according to the care label of the textile and not according to its raw material composition.
The letters in the circle are primarily intended for the professional dry cleaner. They give information on the solvents that can be used. The bar under the circle indicates that mechanical exposure, added moisture, wash and/or dry temperatures have to be reduced.
The symbol for wet cleaning is used for articles which may be treated in water by a professional wet cleaning process. The requirements placed on the professional equipment, the aids used and the finishing methods cannot be achieved with household washing machines.
