Gremlins got in to the works at the sub-editng stage and wreaked havoc on a story in April’s edition of Trade Secrets, ‘Looking after polyester’. The heat was on when we noticed too late that a temperature had a zero added to it so we are taking the opportunity to cool things down with the following amendment.
Under the section ‘Washing/wetcleaning’ in the second paragraph beginning ‘Many cleaners provide….’ It states: “If polyester is washed above 50C the temperature when rinsing must not be reduced at more than 50C per minute until it has once again been brought down to 50C.” The text highlighted in yellow should read ‘5C per minute’.
We have amended this error in the online April digital edition – Trade Secrets is on page 23 – which you can access here.
We apologise for any confusion this may have caused.
