  • Soap?

    So I remember hearing that if you put soap in a crease then iron it (thus melting it) it will keep and wash out when you want it to. Do you think that using soap in the pleats of the hakama and then ironing it well help the pleats stay? Or would that be disrespectful in some way?

    thanks a lot

    The easiest way to keep the pleats in your Hakama is to lay it flat on the floor make sure they are all in the right place then roll your futon out on top of it and sleep on it over night. You will not get a better job any other way

        i use my heavy stacks of porn to set the pleats. 25 years worth of playboys has a way of weighing things down...

        (obvious joke lol but the sad part is close friend is a errr collector and literally does have the last 25 years)

          A "close friend"? Yeah, right, sure.

              Sure, why not? Just watch out for embarrassing stains on your hakama

                Soaping creases is an old navy trick - but soap is strongly alkaline and will eventually rot the cloth fibres, so you could end up doing jigeiko in a dark blue grass skirt.

                  u could use neutral pH soap.. although quite expensive...

                  what about starch to make the pleats stay sharper? or would this be too hard and prevent movement?

                    starch would definitely be a better solution than soap, i think... due to the above mentioned reasons.

                    well, speaking as an old housewife : it depends on how much starch you spray on!

                    lunchbox, do you have a cotton or a tetron hakama?

                          I was just asking if I could put it under my bed next to all the porn (joke by the way) because I don't have a futon

                            My new hakama has the pleats sewn in.. At first it felt like cheating, but since then just about everyone in my dojo has fallen in love with it.
