How to keep your precious batik products in good condition?
Original batik products will have some wax and dye residue. Please wash separately, at least for few rounds until the colour bleed wears off
Do not bleach
Bleach will wears off the dye colour badly, especially with natural colouring agent like indigo batik.
Do not dry clean
Dry clean chemicals doesn’t play well with batik dye agent. Please use mild soap to preserve the colour.
Hand wash in warm water
Warm water will help to dissolve the dye and wax residue more quickly as wax will dissolve with heat.
After wash, hang to dry the batik and avoid direct sunlight to preserve the colour
Iron with medium heat
Use only medium heat to iron your batik product. Preferably add a layer on top of the batik fabric and avoid direct contact
