多数人难懂衣物洗涤标志(图)(二)

2005-09-13 00:00

  调查表明,女性认知衣物洗涤标志的能力比男性强,特别是那些年龄在18岁至29岁的女性,原因是该年龄段的女性在日常生活中较注重衣物的保养。

  调查负责人里弗指出:“衣物洗涤标志像一门独特的语言。很明显,几乎没有几个英国人曾花时间去学习了这门语言。其实用心了解一些常见标志的基本含义,如哪个是”转笼干燥“,哪个又是”普通手洗“,对我们保养服装大有帮助。”

  Washing Symbols Might As Well be Written in Martian

  They have appeared on clothes labels for four decades, each one chosen by international experts for its simplicity and clarity.

  Yet for most people, washing instructions might as well be written in Martian.

  According to a new poll, nine in 10 people are unable to decipher common symbols used on clothes labels.

  Even those who have mastered the difference between a wool and a synthetics wash admit being baffled by the bewildering array of boxes, circles and crosses used to give advice about drying and bleaching.

  The findings come from a poll of 2,000 people carried out by YouGov for Morphy Richards. A third of people surveyed said that they recognised none of the six symbols shown, while the only symbol recognised by more than half of people was the iron with a single dot. Around 70 per cent knew it meant "iron on a low heat". Just 10 per cent sign knew the sign for "do not dry clean", while only 12 per cent were familiar with "drip dry only".
