HEAVY Wash
Use this Program for heavily soiled durable garments e.g. overalls, jeans.
Thick and heavy clothes or those which are excessively dirty like jeans or
working uniforms can be washed. (refer to page 18)
DELICATE Wash
Use this program to wash DELICATE and washable laundries.

WOOL Wash
Delicate clothes
(lingerie, wool, etc.) which may be easily damaged can be washed. (refer to page 18)
The fibers of machine washable woolens have been specifically modified to prevent felting when they are machine washed.
Most handknitted garments are not made of machine washable wool and we recommend that you hand wash them
?
Before washing your woolens check the care label for the washing instructions.
?
When washing woolens use a mild Detergent recommended for washing wool.
Hand washed woolens may be spun in a washing machine to reduce the time they take to dry.
To dry woolens lay down them flat on a towel and pat into shape. Dry woolens out of direct sunlight.
(The heat and tumble action of a dryer may cause shrinkage or felting of woolen garments.)
Some wool underlays and sheepskin products can be washed in a washing machine but may cause pump

Guide for Stain Removal
Special
WARNING
Do not use or mix liquid chlorine bleach with other household chemicals such as toilet cleaners, rust removers, acid or
products containing ammonia. These mixtures can produce dangerous fumes which can cause serious injury or death.

Read and comply with all instructions on stain removal products.
Keep stain removal products in their original labeled containers and out of children's reach.
Thoroughly wash any utensil used.
Do not combine stain removal products, especially ammonia and chlorine bleach. Dangerous fumes may result.
Never wash items which have been previously cleaned in, washed in, soaked in or spotted with gasoline, dry cleaning solvents
or other flammable or explosive substances because they give off vapors that could ignite or explode.
Never use highly flammable solvents, such as gasoline, inside the home. Vapors can explode on contact with flames or sparks.
