washing hakama

Advice please ... I dread damaging the thing / losing the pleats. I know you can't just bung it in a washing machine!

I've got one of those part polyester part cotton hakamas (30%/70% I think). I stuck it in the machine and washed it alone. Then gave it a spin at reduced number of rpm's.

Finally I took it out folded the pleats, secured them in the botton with clothes-pegs, attached the top to a coat hanger and hang the whole thin up to dry in my shower booth. It seemed to work allright.

If your hakama is pure polyester, I think you could just wash it in the machine.

Good luck

If you're worried about washing in the machine, you can do it by hand in the bath tub.

I picked that up from Jun, I think. It works well for me.

FWIW,

I take mine to the dry cleaners. Sometimes you can find a discount dry cleaner. I've had my done as cheap as $4.
