How to maintain your Ankara fabrics

Ankara fabrics are known for their vibrant colors and intricate patterns, and proper maintenance can help ensure that they remain beautiful and last for a long time. Here are some tips for maintaining your Ankara fabrics:

  1. Washing: Ankara fabrics should be hand washed in cold water using mild soap or detergent. Avoid using hot water or bleach as they can cause the colors to fade. Also, be gentle when washing, as harsh scrubbing or twisting can damage the fabric.

  2. Drying: After washing, gently squeeze out excess water from the fabric, but do not wring it. Hang the fabric to dry in a well-ventilated area away from direct sunlight. Avoid using a dryer as it can shrink the fabric.

  3. Ironing: Iron the fabric on the reverse side using a cool iron. If necessary, use a pressing cloth to avoid direct heat on the fabric.

  4. Storage: Store Ankara fabrics in a cool, dry place away from direct sunlight to prevent fading. Fold the fabric neatly and avoid hanging it as this can cause stretching.

  5. Avoid harsh chemicals: Avoid using harsh chemicals such as bleach or fabric softeners on Ankara fabrics as they can cause damage to the fabric.

By following these tips, you can help maintain the beauty and longevity of your Ankara fabrics. You want some cute Ankara designed fabrics, order some on our website
