How to Wash Your Chiffon Hijab
You might see some suggestions to put hijab in a bucket or full sink, but we advise you not to, instead, wash your scarf under running water, using delicate hand washing. It’s preferable to use subtle cleaners like Downy and not Persil Gel, because this helps preserve the dye and fabric to stay the same for years to come. And take care, do not leave the scarf under water for too long, this might damage the fabric on the long run.
