How to Wash a Barong Tagalog

Hand Wash Only

1. Submerge the barong in a mild detergent solution. Gently agitate the solution with your hand to further distribute soap molecules. Take it up and down several times to let the solution flow through the fabric.

2. Use a soft brush (if necessary) to gently remove stains and visible dirt particularly on the collar, underneath the cuffs, and armholes.

3. Rinse it well using clean water. Do not squeeze or twist when rinsing.

4. Hang it in a plastic round edge hanger and drip dry with all the buttons in place to maintain its normal shape.
