You don't actually know what those symbols on clothing care labels mean.
你不知道衣服水洗标上的符号都代表什么

 

It should go without saying, but properly caring for a garment will help preserve its good looks and durability. But as the symbols on garment care labels can look more like hieroglyphics than instructions, treating your clothing right might be more easily said than done.

不言而喻,合理地养护衣服会保持衣服的良好外观,延长衣服的使用寿命。但因为衣服护理标签上的符号看起来更像是象形文字,所以正确养护衣服是说着容易做着难。

Before you snip off an itchy care label, read up on what those symbols actually mean. The label should tell you what kind of fiber or blend the garment is made, whether or not it can be machine-washed, and if it can withstand an iron or bleach. 

在你撕掉让你皮肤发痒的衣服标签前,先看看上面的符号都是什么意思。衣服标签能告诉你,衣服的面料采用的是哪种纤维或混合材质,是否能机洗,以及是否能被熨烫或漂白。

hieroglyphic[,haɪərə'glɪfɪk]: n. 用象形文字写的东西;潦草难懂的符号(或文字);似象形文字的东西

 

下图能帮你认识这些符号

 

You let your damp gym clothes sit around.
把汗水浸透的健身服长时间搁置

 

Working up a sweat is great for you, but not for your clothes. Never let your gym clothes sit around while they're damp, as that's a sure-fire recipe for odor and mildew that might linger even after a wash cycle. The New York Times suggested washing your dirty gym gear as soon as possible and using a sports detergent to eliminate any offensive smells.

出一身汗对你的身体很有好处,但对你的衣服却不是如此。千万不要把汗湿的健身衣服扔在一边,因为长时间搁置后即使洗过后也去不掉衣服上的汗臭味和霉菌。《纽约时报》建议尽快将脏掉的健身服拿去清洗,并建议用运动服专用洗衣液来去除任何难闻的臭味。

mildew['mɪldu]: n. 霉;霉病
