How Quality Water Heaters in Calgary Help Keep Your Wardrobe Clean
Ever wondered what those odd symbols at the back of your shirt or top mean? Industry Canada's Office of Consumer Affairs offers an explanation.The symbols describe the instructions for washing, drying, and ironing in accordance with the CAN/CGSB 86.1-2003, the latest version in a series of care labelling standards dating back as early as 1979. Much earlier versions still exist, but it's unclear when they were implemented. One of the most common labels in clothes and apparel pertain to the use of washing machines. The corresponding symbol is a bucket of water, often with dots inside the water and lines at the bottom of the bucket. The dots represent the ideal temperature for washing certain clothes. For instance, a single dot means that the water temperature must not exceed 30 degrees Celsius.
