Some might call me local when I skip using the washing machine, first I hate piled up clothes and second because of the harshness of detergent most of our clothes can’t stand the washing machine. One of such fabric is the Ankara, this beloved print cannot withstand the harshness of some detergents because of the chemical used to produce this fabric.
If you ever washed your Ankara fabric with a harsh detergent you would notice a washed look the third time around.
Case Scenario: There’s this fabulous Ankara dress that you have, every time you wear it, heads turn and people ask you who your tailor is, you are always proud to be seen in this dress and figure you would have it for at least a year but after the third wear and wash in the machine your dress looks old. This situation is very upsetting but how do you make sure it doesn’t occur?
