If you want your little one’s garments to last a longer time looking new, we have some useful tips for you.
First of all, it is important to know the basic washing symbols:

Maximum temperature in a machine wash cycle. Depending on the fabric, that number can range from 86 to 203. In this case, the maximum temperature permitted is 86ºF.

A bar underneath the washing bin symbol signifies that the garment can be machine laundered in a gentle cycle.

If the container symbol is crossed out, then the garment should not be washed in the washing machine.

If a symbol of a hand is shown, then this is a delicate garment that should not be machine washed. It is recommended to dissolve the detergent in water before putting the garment in the machine. Do not stretch or twist the item.


Do not dry-clean.

You may use bleach during the washing process.

You may use non-chlorine bleach, specifically to preserve colors.

Do not use any bleach.
Iron at low temperature: Maximum 230⁰F. You must be extra cautious with steam irons because they can cause irreversible damage to the garment. We recommend using this maximum temperature for fabrics such as silk, rayon, acetate, or acrylic.

Iron at medium temperature: Maximum 302ºF. This symbol is often found in wool garments and polyester blend garments.

Iron at high temperature: Maximum 392⁰F. This temperature is typically allowed on cotton, linen, or viscose.

Do not use the iron or other forms of steam treatment.

Lay out horizontally for drying.

The garment should be hung while still wet to allow it to drip dry.

Dry garment in the shade, do not let the sun hit directly on the garment.

A machine dryer may be regularly used at a maximum temperature of 122ºF.

Do not use dryer.


In addition, we recommend following these guidelines:
  1. Sort the garments that need to be washed by colors and by how dirty the garments are. Stain removal products are more aggressive and it is best to avoid them when possible.

  2. Provide the recommended amount of detergent as the packaging states, because if you add more than the necessary amount, you may be left with traces of detergent in the fabric.

  3. Wash garments at a low temperature, because washing at high temperatures can use more energy and can wear out the garments.

  4. Do not leave the garments in the machine for too long after the washing cycle is finished. This will prevent unpleasant odors and wrinkling.

  5. If possible, place the garments in the shade to protect the colors from fading due to sun exposure.

  6. Do not fill the washing machine to the top: if it is completely full, the garments will not be able to move freely and will not be washed well.
