– Empty pockets.
– Look out for metal items (paperclips, etc.).
– Trousers, knitwear and knitted textiles, e.g. Jersey garments, T-shirts or sweatshirts should

Conservation tips
– Load the maximum amount of laundry to wash or dry for the
particular programme. aPage 7: Programme overview
– Wash normally soiled laundry without prewash.
– Select Cottons Eco 60°C and additional â(Intensive)
function to obtain good cleaning results with significantly
lower energy consumption.
– Dose the detergent according to the manufacturer’s

Important information Washing drying preparing/Protecting the laundry and the machine
– Empty pockets.
– Look out for metal items (paperclips, etc.).
– Trousers, knitwear and knitted textiles, e.g. Jersey garments, T-shirts or sweatshirts should
be turned inside out.
– Ensure that underwired bras are machine washable.
– Wash delicates in a net/bag (tights, curtains, underwired bras).
– Fasten zips, do up any buttons.
– Brush sand out of pockets and collars.
– Remove curtain hooks or place curtains in a net/bag.
– Use only tumble-dry textiles if you select drying.
– Before tumble-drying, handwash items should be spun using the appropriate spin speed.
– Remove as much water as possible before tumble-drying. Recommended spin speed for
cottons is more than 1000 rpm; for easy-care is more than 800 rpm.
– In order to ensure uniform drying, sort the items according to fabric type and degree
ofâdrying required.
– Items which require ironing do not have to be ironed immediately after being tumble-dried.
It is a good idea to fold or roll them together for a while, so that any remaining moisture
isâevenly distributed.

items individually. Terry towels not more than 4 pieces (or 3 kg).
