I am always on the lookout for ideas that will help “lighten the load” in my laundry room. I sometimes get frustrated trying to figure out the best way to care for our clothes: hot/cold; permanent press; low heat/high heat/no heat, etc. And how in the world am I supposed to convert the Celsius temperature on the tag to Fahrenheit? I’m not in math class; I’m doing the laundry!!
The fabric care tags on clothes are designed to ensure that each fabric is taken care of properly. Unfortunately, you practically need a Ph.D. to interpret the fabric care symbols. Since I don’t have a Ph.D. in laundry technique, I taped a cheat sheet inside a cabinet door above my washing machine that shows the symbols and what they mean. This has also been a big help to 8 year old Bookworm who has laundry duty twice a week.
You can print out a chart of your own here.

Great tip! Who knew you could print out a chart of your own or that they even had a chart like that! Now we do thanks to you!!! ;)Thanks for sharing. Have a great day!
Great chart!! OR! You could use Tide’s Cold Water and not have to worry about it at all. LOL I’ve only used it once and it worked great. I’ll be printing this chart though, because I like doing the traditional washing and it will certainly help Hannah and Justin when they wash. Thanks for the tip!
