If you are someone who checks clothing laundering labels, have you noticed how many different symbols there are? And, if there is no wording with the symbols do you understand what is means?

Many reading this are likely saying they never check the laundry label. What is the big deal? Not all fabrics are made for laundering in the washing machine and could be ruined if the laundry care label is not read or you do not understand what the label is saying.

If you have certain items in your wardrobe which you may have invested a bit in or they are made of fibers which require specific care, you may be interested to know what all the symbols on the laundry care label mean.

There is a handy chart available from University of Tennessee Extension. You can access it online at or contact me to have it mailed as a physical copy. Keep it handy next to your washing machine and you will always have it to reference when those cryptic codes show up.

To learn more, contact Janell at the Chouteau County Extension Office at 622-3036, or in the green building next to the Chouteau County Courthouse at 1308 Franklin St in Fort Benton.
