FlexWash Garment Care Guidelines

This may seem like a no-brainer, but to get the most life out of your clothes, you have to follow the makers care instructions. Doing this will help you avoid the heartache of ruining your favorite threads.

Make sure to check the care label on all clothing, and sort clothing accordingly before starting the wash.

The Water Temperature table lists appropriate wash water temperatures for various items. The temperature range is 106 - 126°F (41 - 52°C) for Hot, 84 - 106°F (29 - 41°C) for Warm, and 61 - 84°F (16 - 29°C) for Cold. (Wash water temperature must be a minimum of 61°F (16°C) for detergent activation and effective cleaning.)

The following symbols provide garment care directions. The clothing care labels include symbols for drying, bleaching, ironing, and dry cleaning. The use of symbols ensures consistency among garment manufacturers of domestic and imported items. Follow care label directions to optimize garment life and reduce laundering problems.
