First and foremost, it is important to understand that durags are not meant to be worn all the time. When you are not wearing your durag, you should hang it up or store it in a safe place. This will help to prolong the life of your durag as well as keep it looking its best. When you are ready to wear your durag again, be sure to shake it out so that any creases or wrinkles are removed.

While this will vary depending on how often you use your durag and the type of activity you do while you're wearing it, it's often best to wash your durag at least once a week. This will help to remove any build-up of sweat, hair products, or dirt that can cause irritation or skin problems. 

Spot Cleaning

If your durag becomes dirty, you can spot clean it with a mild detergent. Be sure to avoid using harsh chemicals or scrubbing the fabric too vigorously as this can damage the material. Once you have spot cleaned your durag, be sure to hang it up or store it in a safe place so it can air dry.

Deep Cleaning

If your durag is in need of a deep cleaning, you can machine wash it on a gentle cycle with a mild detergent. Be sure to avoid using bleach or fabric softener as this can damage the durag. Once your durag is finished washing, hang it up or store it in a safe place so it can air dry.

Hand Washing

Hand Washing

If you prefer to hand wash your durag, you can do so with some simple at-home materials. You can fill up your sink with warm water and add a small amount of light detergent or hand soap to the water. Then you should let your durag soak for about 15 minutes before gently scrubbing off any dirt and leftover oils with your hands. If it requires more care, you can then fill up your sink again and add a few tablespoons of white vinegar. Once again, let it sit for about 30 minutes, and then gently scrub any remaining oils, dirt, or odors. Once this is done, thoroughly rinse the durag with cold water to remove the solution and hang it up to dry or lay it flat on a towel.
