Care instructions from African Clothes Store

Q - How do you hand wash African clothes?

A-  The safest and best way to clean your African print fabrics is to hand wash them in cold to lukewarm water. Pick the Right Temperature & Detergent. If you have to use a washing machine, skip the spin cycle.

 Q - How do you wash a Dashiki

A- Soak for a few minutes then swish in the water a few times. Scrubbing must be very gentle and do this with the fabric inside out. Rinse the fabric in cool water and pat with a clean towel or cloth to remove excess moisture. Lay flat to dry, you can use weights to block the fabric.

Q - How do you soften Batik Fabric

A - Softening Batik Made with Modern Resist. Pour about two gallons warm water and one scoop delicate detergent into the washbasin. Mix the detergent and water with your hand.

Q - Can you iron Batik?

A - Yes but use a low or medium heat setting to avoid wrinkling. Garment steamer or steam setting prohibited. The reason is possible fabric distortion.

*Tip - do not iron directly on the fabric, rather use a clean bandana top of the area you ironing. Place thin pieces of cotton cloth on both sides of the batik fabric while ironing.
