1.1 This International Standard specifies domestic washing and drying procedures for textile testing. The

procedures are applicable to textile fabrics, garments or other textile articles which are subjected to appropriate

agitator type, and

c) 7 procedures based on the use of the reference washing machine Type C: vertical axis, top-loading

1.3 Each washing procedure represents a single domestic wash.

1.4 This International Standard also specifies six drying procedures:

agree on the parameters to be used.
