Let's have a productive Monday!! :)

Quote of the day:
"I stand for freedom of expression, doing what you believe in, and going after your dreams" Madonna-

Start your day with might give you more power to live in :)

Today, i'll give you some tips to take care of your Batik clothes since Batik is uniquely made from malam/lilin that have sensitivity with its colour, read carefully dear:
1. Use a special soap, called lerak (traditional soap), Batik soap (available in Supermarket), or you can use your daily shampoo :)
2. Do not use washing machine or soaked more than 5 minutes
3. Do not not scrub or squeeze too hard
4. Dry the Batik clothes inside out
5. Do not dry the Batik clothes directly to the sunlight
6. Do not use detergent or bleaching
7. If it is not too dirty, wash your Batik clothes with warm water only
8. Iron your Batik with low temperature (be more careful to the silky one)
9. Dry clean if necessary
(taken from Kangen Batik's card)

but for your convenience, just hand wash your Batik clothes with lerak/Batik soap/shampoo, gently rub it, and dry in shade place :)

LOVE your Batik then.. :) 
Have a pleasant DAY!!
