Jeans, do we know how to clean them? Washing Label, common care symbols

Cleaning Denim clothing and other textiles

Example of washable clothing and textiles are:

• underwear, T-shirts • shirts, blouses, knit tops
• cotton, ramie sweaters • spandex actionwear
• coats, jackets, sweatshirts • skirts, dresses, aprons
• jeans, trousers, shorts • socks, tennis shoes
• bedding, towels • accent or throw rugs
• kitchen or bath curtains  

Washing Label, common care symbols. Care labels provide helpful information that can save you time and money. Cleaner, fresher clothes means longer-wearing apparel. And clothes that are bleachable are easier to get clean. When a care label doesn’t mention bleach or says "Bleach when needed," it means it is safe to use Clorox® liquid bleach. When the label says "Non-chlorine bleach when needed" use a non-chlorine (color-safe) bleach like Clorox 2. Because clothes can be mislabeled, follow the easy directions on bleach container labels to test fabrics for colorfastness.

Do Not Dryclean

After reading the washing label in your clothing, take the following steps to clean your clothing:

1. Hang items on a line or spread them out to dry, because you can’t wash them all at once. Don’t leave wet textiles in a heap mildew will grow.

2. If items have dried, shake out or brush off the loose dirt and dried mud.

3. Separate light from dark colored items. Also, separate the wool knit sweaters and silk items to hand wash. (Follow the steps for “silk or wool items.”) Dark colors, wools, and silks can bleed dye and permanently discolor lighter items.

4. Presoak clothes in cold water before machine washing. Do not presoak in your washer. Curtains, blankets, accent rugs, and so on can be hung on a line and hosed down to remove mud.

5. If your washer has a pre-rinse cycle, pre-rinse items with cold water after you presoak them.

6. Use hot water and detergent when washing to help disinfect clothes; do not stuff too many items in one load.

7. Use the regular wash cycle and maximum water level. For permanent press or synthetics, use a permanent press cycle, with an automatic cool down before spinning to prevent wrinkles.

8. Use heavy-duty liquid or powdered detergent and 1/2 cup of water conditioner, if available.

9. Put 1 cup liquid chlorine bleach in the wash water before adding clothes, or use the bleach dispenser for all white, light, and colorfast items. For front-loaders use 1/2 cup of bleach. Use an all fabric bleach for other items. You can get small pinholes in clothes if you pour full-strength bleach on top of them. Never mix bleach and ammonia-based cleaners.

10. Heat kills germs, so tumble dry items using the regular dryer setting. If excess shrinkage is likely, hang items to dry in the sun.

11. Ironing also helps kill germs on cottons and cellulosic blends such as rayon. Steam pressing will kill germs in items that require air drying away from the sun, such as washable wools.
