2. Brush it thinly
3. Spray with water and make sure there is no detergent liquid anymore.
4. You can also soak in water with a fabric softener 10 minutes.
5. Let it dry : Keep it stand under the hot sun hence you will spend less time to let it evaporate

Rehabilitation, training, providing job opportunities
Smile Village was created by the NGO STEP (STEP stands for “Solutions to End Poverty”) and PSE (For a Child Smile, an incredible NGO that has allowed thousands of children to have access to education, to come out of extreme misery and to have access to good jobs).
