Washing symbols

Complementary signs

The cross of s. Andrea, placed on one of the basic graphic signs, indicates that the treatment expressed by that particular graphic sign must not be performed.
The bar under the tray or rim indicates that treatment should be performed moderately with respect to the treatment corresponding to the same bar graph.
The double bar under the tray or the rim indicates a very moderate washing treatment compared to the treatment corresponding to the same graphic sign without a bar.

Bleaching

This operation in an aqueous bath, carried out before, during and after washing with the use of a chlorine-based product, is designed to eliminate stains and / or to improve the whiteness.
The triangle indicates the bleaching treatment.
Any oxidizing bleach agent allowed.
Only allowed chlorine-free oxidative bleaching.
Bleaching not allowed.

Ironing

This operation is carried out on a textile product in order to restore the original shape and appearance through an appropriate equipment that uses heat and pressure.
The iron indicates the ironing operation. the maximum temperature levels are indicated with 1, 2 or 3 points placed inside the drawing.
Maximum temperature of the iron plate: 200 ° c
Maximum temperature of the iron plate: 150 ° c
Maximum temperature of the iron plate: 110 ° c
Do not iron. steam ironing and steam treatments are not allowed

Dry wash

This operation is designed to clean textile products using organic solvents.
The treatment includes cleaning, rinsing, centrifugation and drying
The circle indicates dry cleaning for textiles, excluding leather and fur products, It provides information on the various dry cleaning operations.
Dry cleaning with tetrachlorethylene, monofluoro-trichloromethane and all the solvents indicated for the sign f

Professional wet cleaning
very delicate process.
Do not dry clean.

Mechanical drying

This operation carried out on a textile product after washing is intended to eliminate the residual water by means of hot air, in a rotating drum, after a washing operation.
The maximum stress levels are indicated by 1 or 2 points placed within the graphic sign
The circle inscribed in a square indicates drying by means of a tumble dryer.
Centrifuge drying
Drying by means of a tumble dryer tumble allowed (centrifugal)

Natural drying

Natural drying is a process carried out on a textile article after washing to remove residual water with a hanging or dripping or flat, in the sun or in the shade
The square with other inscribed symbols inside indicate natural drying mode.
Drying in vertical position, hanging, after squeezing and / or centrifuge to eliminate excess water
Drying in vertical position, hanging, of the textile product soaked in water, ie without pressing and / or centrifuge
Drying on a flat, flat surface after the removal of excess water
Drying in the shade. this symbol is placed next to the hanging drying symbols, by dripping or flat to indicate that the process must be carried away away from the sun
