  • Garment drying symbols

    General query not related to any specific model but about the drying symbols on garments. Cotton garments have either one or two dots on the label. Can I still use the cotton drying cycle for those with one dot or is this too rigorous and/or too hot for those garments? Same applies to synthetic items. Some have one dot and some have two. Is the synthetic cycle too hot and /or too rigorous for those with one dot and if so what cycle would be appropriated? If so what cycle would be recommended instead?Mixed cycle - does this mean for an item of mixed fibres or a whole load containing a mixture of cotton and synthetics? Bed linen cycle - how does the machine know what fibre/temperature to dry it on so as not to damage the item as bed linen can be made of different fabrics and require different settings. For info I have an AEG Lavatherm 6000 series. Thanks in advance. Elaine

    If in doubt always use the lower temperature, may need to run for a little longer though.
    Nothing really matters much, and hardly anything really matters at all.

      One dot = low heat.

      Two dots - high heat.

      You cannot dry items with one dot at the higher heat or you will damage them.
