Washing

Process designed to clean textile articles in an aqueous bath Washing includes all or some of the following operations in relevant combinations: - Soaking, pre-washing and main washing - carried out usually with heating, mechanical action and in the presence of detergents or other products - and rinsing; - Water extraction, i.e. spinning or wringing performed during and/or at the end of the operations mentioned above. These operations may be carried out by machine or by hand.

The numbers in the washing tub specify the maximum temperature in °C which must not be exceeded. The bar underneath the washtub characterizes a mild process with reduced mechanical action especially for easy care articles. The double bar indicates a very mild process especially for woolen articles.
