Most cotton can only be put in the dryer with a low temperature or cannot go in the dryer at all. Pure cotton can be washed hot. With modern detergents you should also get it clean at a low temperature (30 - 40 ℃). Bright colors should be taken care of if the detergent you use does not contain any optical bleaching agents to prevent the color from fading. White cotton can be washed at 95 ℃.
