WASHING HINTS

Sort the laundry according to the type of fabric, colour
fastness and how dirty it is.
When washing curtains remove the hooks.
It is essential to wash new coloured items separately when
washing them for the first time.
When washing fabrics requiring different wash
temperatures together , always select the lowest one.
White items should NOT be washed with coloured ones.
For wool use gentle detergents only in small quantities.
Only wool marked 'PURE NEW WOOL WASHABLE
PRESHRUNK' can be washed in the machine using the
wool program; other types of wool should be washed by
hand or dry cleaned.
Some stains such as fruit, wine, grass, rust, blood, etc. are
difficult to remove and should be treated before washing
with specific products which can be found in most
household shops. In any case they should be treated
immediately , later on they are difficult to remove.
Damp laundry should be hung out to dry as soon as
possible after finishing the wash.
Knitwear and woollens should be dried flat, away from
direct sunlight.
On the care labels in most clothes wash code symbols can
be found which help you to select the adequate wash
program. You are advised to observe and follow these
instructions.
On the following table you will find the meaning of the
symbols.

LOAD THE WASHING MACHINE

Check the quantity you are going to wash for each cycle.
It is rather difficult to weigh all the pieces to be washed. We
therefore advise you:
Cotton and linen: fill the drum without pressing.
Synthetic resistant : fill two thirds of the drum.
Delicates and wool: fill half the drum.

TEMPERATURES

You are advised to wash whites at a temperature of 60°C. If
the laundry is not very soiled this will be enough and it is
energy saving. If you want to wash whites without
temperature, you must choose the program B(•).
Coloured fabrics are advised to be washed at 40°C
although they would stand 60°C.
When washing together dark and light coloured fabrics the
temperature should not exceed 40°C. Synthetic white and
light coloured fabrics can be washed at 60°C, but here also
40° will do if they are not very soiled.
Dark synthetics, delicate fabrics and wool must be washed
at 40°C.
