App of the Week – Laundry Day
Nothing is more frustrating than trying to decipher those mysterious washing instruction tags on garments. What do those symbols mean? What is worse is that you know that making a mistake will ruin the clothes and send your hard earned money down the drain. That is why Laundry Day is the App of the Week.
The world has become a global market place and its likely your new silk blouse or cashmere sweater was imported. And that goes for many of the clothes we wear in the U.S. So when you look at that laundry tag you gonna ask, WTF?! But here is a bit of useless trivia that suddenly becomes useful. There is an internationally recognized dictionary of laundry symbols published by the TextileLearner. Its a dictionary not a Bible. We found a lot of symbols that were not listed there.
The Laundry Day app works by using image recognition technology that automatically sees, deciphers and provides the user with a translation of the information. You could consider this app an investment or insurance policy against destroying clothes that are not supposed to be dry cleaned or washed with dark colors that bleed. Yeah; we have all done that!
Laundry Day costs $1.19 and is available only on Apple.
