How to Wash the Blanket
If you are like most people, your blanket probably goes through a lot of wear and tear. Rather than just tossing it in the wash with the rest of your laundry, it’s important to treat it like a piece of clothing and wash it according to the instructions below.
1. Pre-treat any stains: If there are any stains on the blanket, first try applying a stain-removing product to get rid of as much dirt and residue as possible. If that doesn’t work, you can try soaking the blanket in a solution of soap and water before washing it.
2. Soak for at least 30 minutes: If you’re using a pre-treater or soap and water soak, allow the blanket to soak for at least 30 minutes before washing it. This will help take care of any built-up dirt and grime.
3. Wash in cold water: Washing your blanket in cold water will help preserve its color and reduce the amount of shrinkage that will occur during drying. You can also use a mild detergent if you’d like.
4. Hang or tumble dry: Once the blanket is washed, either hang it up to dry or tumble it around in your dryer for about 15 minutes to relax all the fabric fibers.
