Laundry Symbol Help :)

 I don't know if it's just me, but lately I've been having trouble reading
the laundry instructions for our new clothes and linens. 
It seems that everything is in symbols.
The very talented Torie Jayne came to my rescue, 
and did a post this week on this very thing. 
I ♥loved♥ it and asked her if I could share it with you, (she graciously said "yes")
because I have a feeling I'm not the only one that is a bit lacking in 
"laundry symbol" proficiency :)

  Aren't they wonderful? She's created 3 different pages, 
with many of the symbols you'll want to know.
What a great idea for the laundry room, or if you're like me,
and your laundry room is in the garage, just hang them up above your hamper.

You can find all 3 of them on her blog right here.
Be sure to tell her "hi" too :)
Thank you so much Torie Jayne!

Remember when English was the default language for most things? Now, no one can agree....hence the universally understood pictures which no one can understand without help.

It's me said...

What a lovely idea.....have a nice sunday

How fun! I have yet to notice these symbols. I love her frames and thanks for sharing, I will probably be seeing these symbols all over now!


Deborah said...

Gail @ Faithfulness Farm said...

How handy is that!! Thanks for this fabulous information :)


Elaine @ Sunny Simple Life said...

It's true it is in some foreign language code thing. Those are too darn cute and what a great idea.

Brandi said...

such a clever idea and very handy to have in the laundry room.

Ceekay- Thinkin of Home said...

Oh man, I didn't see that they changed the tags...but then again, I haven't bought much lately that is fabric...great idea though!! and cute frames!

T's Daily Treasures said...

Cute idea for the laundry room. They put so many tags and symbols on everything these days, but I don't pay much attention to them. The only choice of water temperature we have during the summer is HOT since water tanks are on the roofs. Hope you are having a great weekend. Tammy

Beverly said...

Who knew?? I haven't come across those symbols yet, but I feel educated now. You are so right. Great art for the laundry room or hamper area. Those are just the cutest frames.

Mandy @ Creekside Creations said...

This is so funny to me! I see now that I was very wrong about some of the symbols. I had been guessing at what they meant!

Kelli said...

Love this idea! :) Beautiful frames, too.

Just want to say that I haven't had a whole lot of blog reading time lately but I just scrolled through and got caught up here. I adore this place! You always have such lovely photos and your blog always makes me feel good. :) Thank you for that.

As for Jordan...YAY!!! God is so good! :) I am thrilled with the progress that he is making and so thankful. :)

God bless! I'll be back SOON. ;)

Hmm..I haven't run across these symbols yet....only the old fashioned words. Thanks for sharing because I'm sure I will! And I do love how they look in your frames....what a nifty idea!

Have a great week, Marcia!

Cheryl @ The Farmer's Daughter said...

Thanks for sharing these, Marcia. I haven't seen these symbols yet, but it's probably only a matter of time so I'll save them for future use. Have a great week!

Sue said...

I'm not sure why these symbols are so hard to figure out, are you? But I'm glad your friend is helping us!


Cozy Little House said...

It seems like everything is getting just a little more difficult to decipher lately. One bit of good news though: they plan to put out a new food pyramid because the old one is too complicated for folks to figure out what to eat! I know, I'm way off laundry talk!

Tanya said...

Hi Marcia,
Ok...either I haven't been buying anything new or haven't been paying attention to labels. These symbols are completely new to me!!!!!! Sooooooo when I do see them....I'll really be on top of the game, huh? HA!
Thanks for sharing...and I love those pink frames!

Sweet Cottage Dreams said...

I know what you mean!!! Cute pictures!!!!


Thinking of you and Jordan....

What a great idea to have the symbols framed in your laundry room! Thanks for sharing this!

GWENNY said...

I used to work at a drycleaner's and even we had to look up the meaning for those symbols. Thanks for sharing.

Bringing Pretty Back said...

That is a great and PRETTY idea! Anytime laundry can be made more fun/pretty is great to me!
Have a PRETTY day!

Mimi Sue said...

Great idea! Thanks for the info. Adorable frames too. Mimi

Burlap Luxe said...

Cleaver, and oh so cute! New to me and how cute they would be in a laundry room, :) Of course!!

Have a beautiful week Marcia,keep inspiring uniqueness!

PS....How is Jordan doing??
Still thinking about him :)

Sarah at Finishing Touch Interiors said...

No you really are not the only one who gets confused witht he symbols so glad you shared this post what a wonderful idea

Manuela@A Cultivated Nest said...

Hadn't noticed all the symbols? Very cute in those frames!

michelle said...

those are so adorable! What a great way to help out in the laundry room. :)

Sarah @ Modern Country Style said...

I love the pink frames. Wouldn't that be a lovely present for a student, or someone about to leave home and do their washing for the first time?



Kimberly said...

I hadn't noticed the new symbols but, thanks to you, I'll be well informed when I come across them. The framed prints are too cute & a great idea too. Thanks for sharing!

Shelley said...

Omigosh - what a wonderful idea and so nice to share! I always have problems w/ those laundry symbols. love those frames too - perfect!

Melanie said...

What a cool idea! Functional beauty is great!
Hope you're having a wonderful week. :)

Helen said...

What a wonderful idea !!

I agree, not alway easy to know what all these symbols mean.....

We can live in Italy and Norway, because my husband has his own firm, and must not do his work from Norway. He travelles a lot with his work, and does this just as well from Italy as Norway - so the best of both, is what I like to say ;)

take care - ciao
