How to care for your BARONG TAGALOG?
Prepare a solution of mild soap and lukewarm water.
Dip the barong up and down the solution taking care not to wring or squeeze the barong.
Use a soft toothbrush to scrub off the stubborn dirt especially on the collar, underneath the cuffs, and arm holes.
Rinse the barong thoroughly. Do not twist your barong. Hang dry.
Put your iron on a low to medium setting. Jusi and pinya, which are the fabrics that barong is made of, are very delicate.
Use an ironing board. Start with the embroidered areas on the front. For the best effect, invert the barong and iron the embroidery on the back side.
Then revert to the right side and iron the sleeves and collar, just as you would any dress shirt.
Put a piece of white cloth between the barong and iron.
