I’ll be honest with you: Until I sat down to make this printable, I had absolutely no idea what most of the laundry symbols on my clothes meant. Whenever I came across an unfamiliar laundry symbol on a new item of clothing, one of two things would happen. I either had to stop to google what the symbol meant or, more frequently (see: most of the time), I would just toss the clothing in the machine and hope for the best. Though my lazy self favoured the latter approach, wool clothes really did not. Shrunken garments everywhere. Yikes.
To cater to both my own unwillingness to google and my terrible memory, I thought I should probably have some sort of chart in my laundry that had both the symbols and a ‘translation’ underneath. That way, if I forgot the meaning of a particular symbol, I could just glance up at the chart to double check.
So I created this laundry symbol wall art in InDesign and popped the finished product up on my laundry wall, right near the laundry shelves I made from an upcycled drawer.
Laundry is so much easier. No more guessing. No more looking for my phone to google ‘what the heck is that little circle dude on my clothing tag’. No more shrunken woollens.
Well. Maybe still some shrunken woollens. You know, the way they always happen to shrink the week after you eat nothing but ice cream? Funny things.
