Re: Taking care of your Hakama with heavy use?

Congratulations on your Shodan achievement!
I wash my hakama about twice a year. Before i hand wash it, i clip all the pleats in place. Wash thoroughly, rinse thoroughly and let dry by hanging it away from the sun. That's about it, really. My hakama takes a lot of punishment during lessons yet even the cheapest (material wise) garment of the sort stays with me for at least 3 years.
Be well
