Tip: In order to keep the folds of the Hakama after washing it, just follow this procedure.
Before washing, fold the Hakama (see how here). Put it in the tub and wash it by trampling on it like traditional winepresses do. Once it is done, carefully open the folds and hang it on a line to dry. Take it off before it is completely dry and fold it back, then press it with books and leave it to dry. It will then look like perfectly ironed!
