If you’ve been following me on Instagram, you have caught a glimpse of all the pink across Japan. We were traveling in various cities in Japan and catching the cherry blossoms as they bloom. It’s truly unique how much the people embrace the spring season – the parks were packed with people having picnics under the sakura at all hours of the day. It was quite interesting to see all the business people having picnics at night still in their work clothes! And, everywhere we went, there were offerings of sakura everywhere including wine, champagne, coffee, and soda. I’m glad we were able to see all of these sights and sounds – will be posting a full update soon!

How to read the symbols on your clothing tags + FREE printable!

How to read the care symbols on your clothing tags (+free printable) | see all the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

Pink silk blouse {this season’s} // Lace peplum top {under $30 with code MUSTSHOP} // Bow sweater

 

You just bought a new, coveted piece to add to your closet. You put new said item in the wash. Raise your hand if you’ve ever washed something in the laundry and once you pull it out find that it’s not the same shape or size anymore? I’ve been guilty of shrinking a sweater (or two) in my day! Sometimes, the directions for care are written on the tag but sometimes, they’re not and you’re left with only the laundry symbols to decipher. What exactly does that circle or square or triangle mean?

Today’s clothing is made from so many different materials or combinations of, that it’s hard to have a one-size-fits-all approach to the care. When I buy something, I want it to last so I can get the most wear out of it so it only makes sense to understand the care instructions.

How to read the care symbols on your clothing tags (+free printable) | see all the details on www.shoppingmycloset.com

I’ve gotten tired of having items no longer fitting properly due to laundering mishaps that I did some research and compiled a guide of how to read laundry symbols including: wash, dry, iron, and dry clean. Hopefully, this guide helps answer all your questions about those pesky symbols and you’re able to care for your clothes properly.

Feel free to pin the image below for reference, or if you’d like to print it out to hang in your laundry area, I’ve included a link below (can be as big as 16″x20″).
