Washing & Drying
There is a separate Standard ISO 6330 which establishes the washing and drying programs ‘behind’ the care label. It is this Standard that allows retailers and manufacturers to choose which care label to use. UKFT staff also sit on the ISO committee that maintains this Standard.
ISO 6330 is currently under revision. The main aim of this revision is to ensure that the Standard is based on global practice and that the wash processes in the Standard remain more severe than those in domestic washing machines.
