Batek Care

SINCE BATIK IS A PIECE OF ART, SPECIAL TREATMENT IS REQUIRED.

 

WASHING: For best results, hand wash. Seperate darks from lights.When washing
for the first time, soak the fabric for 4-5 hours in cold  water with 1 teaspoon of
salt or vinegar.

For the first 3 washes, hand wash using baby shampoo or Sapindus rarak (rerak or lerak).

If you use a washing machine, select “delicate” or “gentle” cycle, and use cold water.

Do not use chlorine bleach, strong detergents, or brighteners.

Do not wring or twist the fabric to squeeze out water.


DRYING: Line drying is recommended. Avoid direct sunlight. Turn the fabric inside out.
If u use a dryer, select ”low heat” setting. Do not over dry.


IRONING: Select a warm setting. For best results, iron the fabric while it is still a little
damp.
