We advise all Sika'a garments are washed using a 40C programme. Setting your machine to a low-spin will help to minimise energy usage and protect the garment from wear and tear. To further improve the efficiency of your wash, ensure your drum is filled to the correct capacity. Follow the washing detergent's instructions exactly, making sure to abide by the specified measurements and quantities. These steps will help to reduce your household carbon footprint while maintaining the quality of your Sika'a African dresses.
