Way to Take Your Hijab

Tips to take care your hijabs

1. Wash Hijabs Separately

One thing to always make sure you’re doing is not to wash your scarf with towels, coats, sweaters, and shirts. This especially goes for all those scarves. What ends up happening is that the scarf can “capture” and stick on to a lot of the lint and particles that may shed from other clothing items. 

Try to pile up your scarves separately and wash them together. If you don’t want to wash all your scarves separately, I’d recommend at the very least separating the more “delicate” scarves such as viscose, silk, or even jersey. 

2. Try Air Drying as Much as Possible

Air drying will make your scarves feel so much lighter, and is GREAT for the fabric. I personally almost always air dry my scarves, because they don’t take long to dry at all. Plus, they feel so soft afterwards. 

Why do so many people prefer air drying their hijabs? A lot of times, scarves get “staticy” in the dryer and fabrics begin to stick together. If you notice your scarves doing this, try drying them over a door or outside, and see if it makes a difference. 

3. Wash Whites Separately  

Wash your whites separately! One of the worst feelings is accidently finding your white hijabs in a load of clothes and seeing it change color. Make an effort to take the whites into a seperate pile and wash them all at once. 

I normally don’t separate the rest of my hijabs out by color. I take out the whites and do them at a different time. As long as the hijabs you own are secure in their color, it’s okay to wash together. (If you’re ever unsure, do a test run with a single scarf on a small load)

4. Iron on the Opposite Side of Designed Prints

If you own any Headed Somewear designs, make sure you’re ironing them on the reverse side to maintain the quality of the print. I normally go on high and iron, as long as I’m doing it on the opposite side. 

It’s good practice to actually apply this to not just all your hijabs, but all your clothes too. By ironing inside out, you keep the quality of the fabric on the front side, all the while getting rid of those wrinkles!
