Always Check The Clothing Label

Be sure to check clothing labels for recommended care of the garment. The manufacturer is liable by law for accurate care guidelines on the label so if it is ruined it will be much easier to get it replaced.

I have a new dress that states to hand wash. As soon as I put it in the water it started to bleed the bright aqua color. I don't know all of the symbols that are on the tag and can't seem to find them anywhere either. What can I do to stop it from bleeding color and what do some of these symbols mean? A bucket with a hand - hand wash. A empty bucket with an X? A shirt?

Take a look at this link: www.textileaffairs.com/lguide.htm.
It's a fabric care chart that has all of the symbols that you might see on a tag.
I often hand wash a particular blouse and it always bleeds but it always comes out fine.
Good luck!
