This symbol alerts you to take care as oil-aected items can
ignite, especially when exposed to heat, such as in a clothes
dryer. The items become warm, causing an oxidation reaction
in the oil. Oxidation causes heat. If the heat cannot escape,
the items can become hot enough to catch fire. Piling,
stacking or storing oil-aected items can prevent heat
from escaping and so it will create a fire hazard.
• Do not use the tumble dryer if industrial chemicals have been used for cleaning.
• Do not dry unwashed items in the dryer.
• Do not allow lint to accumulate around the tumble dryer. Clean the Lint Trap and
Filter after every use.
• Enough ventilation has to be provided to avoid the backflow of gases into the
room from appliances burning other fuels including open fires.
• Remove all objects from pockets such as lighters and matches.
• If it is unavoidable that fabrics that contain vegetable or cooking oil or have
been contaminated by hair care products be placed in a tumble dryer they
should first be washed in hot water with extra detergent - this will reduce, but
not eliminate, the hazard.
