    Correct Answer
    B. Cotton retains color better than polyester fabrics
    Explanation
    Cotton retains color better than polyester fabrics. This statement is false because polyester fabrics are known to retain color better than cotton. Polyester is a synthetic fiber that is resistant to fading and can hold color for a longer time compared to cotton. Cotton, being a natural fiber, is more prone to color fading and may require special care to maintain its color.

    • A.

      100% cotton table napkins

    • B.

      Wool blankets

    • C.

      Polyester napkins

    • D.

      Nylon sheets

    Correct Answer
    A. 100% cotton table napkins
    Explanation
    100% cotton table napkins can be safely washed and ironed at high temperatures because cotton is a durable and heat-resistant fabric. It can withstand high temperatures without shrinking or getting damaged. Wool blankets, on the other hand, are delicate and can shrink or lose their shape when exposed to high temperatures. Polyester napkins and nylon sheets are synthetic fabrics that can melt or warp when subjected to high heat, so they should be washed and ironed at lower temperatures.

    High thread count sheets should be washed on what setting?

    • A.

      Hot

    • B.

      Warm

    • C.

      Cold

    Correct Answer
    B. Warm
    Explanation
    High thread count sheets should be washed on a warm setting because warm water helps to remove dirt, oils, and sweat from the sheets more effectively than cold water. The warm water also helps to kill any bacteria or allergens that may be present on the sheets. Washing high thread count sheets on a warm setting ensures that they are thoroughly cleaned and sanitized, while also helping to preserve their quality and softness.
