Custom Tie Dye Sarong
We like to try new things from time to time here at Custom Sarongs. One of our most recent projects was to create a custom tie-dye sarong. You can find tie dye sarongs for sale online and in stores, but we wanted to create our own.   

With a plain white sarong and a basic tie dye kit, we were able to create two AWESOME sarongs. Below is a breakdown of how we tie dyed the sarongs.

Step One:
Purchase a white sarong and a basic tie dye kit.

Step Seven:  Dye the sarongs in a circular pattern. The ink comes out pretty slow so be generous and don't worry about messing up. Make sure you get both sides of the sarong and that the ink has penetrated the inside of the sarong.

A fabric steamer can be used to dewrinkle sarongs
A fabric steamer
After a couple of uses, your sarong will inevitable get dirty and wrinkled. Treat your sarong as if it were any other laundry item and get it cleaned asap!  We will explain the three easiest ways to clean your sarong and make it wrinkle-free:

  1. Washer/Dryer - Stick it in the washer with your normal laundry. If  you have a color sarong - put it in in with the colors, and if it's white - vice versa. When drying the sarong - make sure the setting is on low heat. Or, what also works is air-drying the sarong.

  2. Fabric Steamer - This is an extremely useful household item. This device creates high temperature steam which kills most bacteria upon contact and removes wrinkles. Because sarongs are so thin, once the steam touches the sarong, it instantly softens it, kills bacteria, and removes the wrinkle. To cover a standard size sarong, it usually takes about 3-5 minutes. 

  3. Flat iron - This is the tried and true method easily removing wrinkles from your sarong.

If you have any other ways you can clean or de-wrinkle your sarong, please e-mail me with your story.
