Pets leave behind enormous amounts of hair and other detritus, which can quickly obscure your furniture, carpets, flooring, and even walls. And in the case of blankets and throws, it can be particularly problematic. Lint is one of the most common causes of throw blanket problems. It’s a type of fiber that’s basically dust mites’ heaven, and it’s not hard to see why. Lint is incredibly soft and smooth, making it extremely difficult to remove. Fortunately, there are several methods you can use to remove lint from your blankets without resorting to harsh chemicals or scrubbing. Learn more in this blog post; after reading it, you won’t have to worry about lint ever obscuring your beautiful throws again.
What You’ll Need
What You’ll Need:
-Bucket or pan
If the blanket is very dirty, you may also need a vacuum cleaner and some cleaning supplies. First, gather your materials. You will need a lint roller, shower, step stool, bucket or pan, and hot water. If the blanket is dirty and has built up lint and other debris, you will first need to liberally apply your lint roller to the blanket surface. Next, take your shower. Fill the bucket or pan with hot water and place it next to the shower. Soak the blanket in the hot water for about 30 seconds. The heat should loosen any built up debris on the blanket surface. Once you have loosened all of the debris, use your soap to clean off the blanket surface. Be sure to scrub all of the dirt and lint off of the blanket. Finally, dry off the blanket with a towel before putting it back in its storage container
How to Get Lint Off a Throw Blanket
If you have a throw blanket that has started to accumulate lint, there are several ways to get the lint off.
One way is to use a vacuum cleaner with the hose attachment. Move the blanket around so that the entire surface is covered. Turn on the vacuum and wait until the blanket has been sucked up into the machine. Be careful not to leave any lint behind on the blanket.
Another way is to use a hairdryer with a cool setting. Start by placing the blanket in front of the dryer, so that it is completely covered. Turn on the dryer and wait until it reaches its hottest setting. Hold the blanket against your body and turn it around so that all sides are exposed to the heat. Keep an eye on it so that it doesn’t overheat or catch fire. Leave it in place for about two minutes, then take it out and let it cool down before using it again.
If either of these methods don’t work, you can try washing it with regular laundry detergent and water as usual. Be sure to rinse well after washing to get rid of any remaining lint.
Lint is one of the most common household allergens, and it can be a real pain to get it off your throw blanket. Here are four tips that should help you remove lint from your throw blanket easily: 1) Wet the throw blanket in cool water and then wring it out. 2) Use a hair dryer on low heat to warm up the blanket and loosen any lint. 3) Apply a mild detergent to the area where lint is stuck, using a scrubbing brush if necessary, and then rinse the area thoroughly with cold water. 4) Hang the wet blanket outside to air-dry.
