Help me, please.


I'm trying to decipher the care label on some "squishy" pillows I bought for the kids. Apparently, the Japanese have a separate standard for care labels. . I'm pretty sure I can wash this in a front loading machine in cool water but I can't figure out what the last one means. Given the gazillion things I should be doing right now, deciphering the label on a pillow should be at the bottom of my list, right? Please put me out of my misery and help me figure out how to clean these puppies. Much appreciated! Posted by Picasa

Whatsa matter, don't you have a computer? Google it! The circle with an X through it means don't dryclean but I don't know what those little marks inside the circle mean. Maybe it's Japanese for "Cross your chopsticks on your plate when you're done eating."

OMG - I spent like an hour on the internet googling this thing and I could not find the definitions of the Japanese symbols! (Like I had nothing else to do!) I did find some clothes I have that have both US and Japanese symbols so now I'm pretty sure the last one means don't put it in the dryer. But I'm not sure. Basically, I think I just won't clean them - I'll just let my kids lay on germy pillows. It's another great moment in parenting!
