Once your kimono has been worn, hang the kimono and nagajuban (underwear) in a dry place out of direct sunlight. Do not hang for more than a day. Fold neatly and store in a clean, dry drawer.
Gently dust off your kimono with a soft piece of fabric such as velvet or towel, or with a kimono brush or cashmere brush.
Stains must be removed immediately.Benzine is used to clean makeup, dirt and oil stains.
How to remove stains
Spread a white towel over an ironing board or table, then place the part of the kimono or nagajuban with the stain over it.
Put benzine (not diluted) on a gauze, then pat directly on the stain(s). Avoid wiping or rubbing into the fabric otherwise the dirt will diffuse into the fibers.
How to iron a Kimono Use a pressing cloth and iron the inner layer of the kimono. Gently press wrinkles, and do not press forcefully. Do not iron over foil and embroidery. The heat may alter the color and quality. Do not iron over the Shibori pattern as it may flatten it. *Always dry iron. Do not steam iron.
