Wax Prints

Wax prints can be hand-washed, machine-washed (w/ cold or warm water) or dry cleaned. There’s no need to use a garment bag but you can if you please.
Fading should be minimal because of the resin (a sticky insoluble compound) added to the fabric during production hence the name, “wax” prints.


I’ve gotten some vintage pieces from Mummy LAJA, some older than me and they still look as good as new. You can’t even tell. I think, dayumm, that’s some quality right thurr.

Fancy Prints

Fancy Prints Can Be Hand-Washed Or Machine Washed (Cold Wash On Gentle) However, Do NOT Dry Clean Them Especially If It Has Gold Colouring Or Shimmery Glitter.


If You Machine Wash, Throw It In A Garment Bag Before Putting It In. The Garment Bag Reduces Abrasion & Protects The Fabric’s Shine. Fancy Prints Do Fade If You Wash Them Too Often So Don’t Treat Them Like You Would Gym Clothings. In My Experience, I Haven’t Experienced Any Extreme Fading That I Can’t Wear Them Again (Print Quality Matters Tho). So Unless I Sweat Like Mad Or There Are Visible Stains, I Mostly Air & Fold.

I Find Hand-washing To Be The Best Method So I Recommend It. For Me, Washing Is A Punishment😥 So Thank God For Washing Machines Yass! Just Be Careful✌ How Do You Care For Your Prints?
