Washing labels: Next day shipping

A laundry guide. Sometimes it will be handy. Especially for moments your white items turn out grey after some washing. Such a pity. And, so not necessary. It happens when you don’t pay attention while separating laundry. Our advice: look at the washing label and read the instructions.

For your convenience you can add washing labels on your self-made items to separate them easily while doing laundry. After all, washing labels are indispensable for garments. They contain all the information about the washing instructions of the garment.

Your laundry guide for your washing labels

If you are in a fabric shop looking for fabric for your future selfmade garments, it’s for the best if you ask what kind of materials you’re holding and how to treat them. Then you know exactly which kind of washing symbols you must add on your washing labels. If you are going to create your own washing labels, it is important you know which symbols you need. The symbols can sometimes be quite cryptic, so we would like to explain the washing label symbols.
