To wash a durag, follow these steps:
Fill a sink or basin with warm water and add a small amount of mild detergent.
Place the durag into the water and use your hands to gently agitate it, making sure to fully immerse it.
Let the durag soak in the water for about 5-10 minutes.
Rinse the durag thoroughly with cool water to remove any soap residue.
Squeeze out excess water from the durag, but do not wring or twist it.
Lay the durag flat on a clean towel and roll up the towel to absorb any remaining moisture.
Hang the durag up to air dry, avoiding direct sunlight or high heat.
Note: Avoid using bleach or fabric softener on a durag, as these can damage the fabric and decrease its lifespan. It's best to hand wash a durag, as machine washing and drying can also damage the fabric and alter its shape.
