Lenor Perfect Laundry team - Detergent, fabric softener, in-wash scent booster and tumble dryer sheets

Fabric Conditioner Symbol - The flower is the fabric softener symbol. Do not exceed the max mark when you’re pouring in your fabric conditioner.

One-Line Symbol– The one-line symbol indicates the pre-wash, where you pop in some detergent when you’re going to do a ‘pre-wash’ cycle. You would use this option before a main wash cycle, to help remove tough dirt and stains from your items. This drawer needs to be filled up if you plan on giving your clothes an extra thorough wash. If it’s not filled, your washing machine will just go through a main wash and your clothes might not come out as clean and fresh as you’d like them to! Note that not all washing machines have this function.

Two-Line Symbol – The two-line symbol represents the main wash compartment and is the slot you’ll put the detergent into and use most of the time to wash your clothes.
