Clothing Care


Two ways you can learn about your clothing:

1. Hang Tags –

Are larger tags attached to new garments. Are removed before wearing. Include pricing information, style, size.

2. Permanently attached labels (or printed in ink)- Mandated to be included by the “Care Labeling Rule” and include information about the clothing such as fiber content.


Care Labels

Care labels provide helpful information that can save you time and money. Knowing how to read them can keep your clothes safe!

Cleaner, fresher clothes means longer-wearing apparel.

Knowing the symbols can help you when you sort laundry.


Labels should include three pieces of information for clothing that will be laundered:

Temperature of water used.

For example – Cold water

Temperature of iron.For example – Low heat Any other warningsFor example – No Bleach


Why is knowing the fiber content helpful?

It helps you know how to care for the garment,

It tell you how well it will wear,

And it tells you how comfortable it will be.


Natural Fibers – Come from plants or Animals

plantLinen – flax plantWool – sheepSilk – silkworm


Synthetic Fibers – Manufactured from chemical elements

DIFFERENT from liquid detergent…if you use this form of softener you must also use detergent!!!Examples…Bounce, Downy, Snuggles


Step 2 – Why Separate?

Separate and Evaluate Your Clothes

Separate your clothes by

color Separating helps protect the color and durability of your garment

Should an accident occur the damage cannot be undone!What would happen if a red sock got mixed into white towels?Look at the care labels




Basic t-shirts, white socks, sheets, pillowcases and other plain white clothing/linens

LightsEverything from pastels to striped or patterned whitesA white item with enough color (logo/pattern) to make you think doesn’t fit with the whitesDarksDark socks, shirts, all jeans, dark pants

Newly dark clothing should be washed alone firstDelicatesWool garments, sweaters, satin, undergarments These can be washed in a machine but hand-washing is usually better.


What to evaluate?


Are they

empty?ZippersAre they up? (This prevents snagging)

Ties (hoodies/drawstrings/etc)Should be tied to prevent losing them or getting them tangled


Step 3


This is the easy part

Step 4

Drying your nice clean clothes

lint filterAdd dryer sheetsUnload clothes from washerInspect stains…the heat in the dryer will bake it in!


More drying…

Overloading…why is this a problem

Most cycles last

30-40 minutesJeans/towels take longerTake light cotton items out early to avoid wrinkles

Dry for too long=shrinking!!!Hang delicates to dryHelps them maintain shape


Step 5

Folding…the last task!


immediately…avoids wrinklingDon’t hang sweaters (they will lose shape and take the form of the hanger)Iron/Hang button down shirts



Ironing is what we do before we put on clothes, that are wrinkled.

SLIDE your iron back and forth on the fabric with pressure.

Pressing is for sewing. Place the iron down on fabric, then lift it back up in quick intervals. Repeat this up and down motion, overlapping as you go.
