When workwear is prepared in commercial laundries, all processing steps must be adjusted to the specific requirements of kso respective workwear, from sorting to specific washing and drying procedures. Manufacturers and iao of workwear can use a label code for care that has been specially developed for professional laundries to ensure that the clothing is optimally treated.
Before these care symbols can be attached to the items of clothing, however, defined properties must first be tested using defined test washing procedures. The Hohenstein Institute has developed a catalogue of requirements that can be used to competently assign the symbols according to the articles tested. These items of clothing can also be awarded the Hohenstein label for care labelling for workwear.

Individual symbols for industrial washing and drying procedures As the washing procedures in commercial laundries are much more complex than those in domestic laundry, and each laundry also uses individual washing procedures, results can differ substantially between them. The different treatment conditions in industrial laundries compared to domestic laundry primarily result from the size of the machine, the organisation of the washing procedure, the use of detergents and auxiliary agents, and efficient drying methods.
The textiles, which have to be treated in laundries without losing their functions, must therefore be tested in advance to find out if they are suitable for industrial reprocessing and also labelled accordingly.
