Care Symbol Chart
Do you ever wonder what a care symbol chart is trying to tell you? Learn how to decipher the series of hieroglyphics popping up on your laundry’s care labels. Above you will find some of the more common symbols related to washing, temperature, cycles and finishing of an item.
However, it is important to keep in mind that some care labels are placed on garments prior to their embellishments. Therefore, the instructions may not be applicable to the newly adornments such as sequins and beading. When in doubt, ask your trusted couture cleaner – Hallak Cleaners.

Have you ever wondered if you should remove a care label? At the time of purchase, garments are required to have a label so it can be used as an aid in the consumer’s consideration. Under the 1972 Care Label Amendment, all manufacturers and importers must have at least one safe method of cleaning specified on a “permanent” label. While we understand that some labels are placed in an uncomfortable area, it is best to leave it intact.
When in doubt, trust a professional. Like what you see? Follow Hallak Cleaners for fashion fun, trends and tips.
