Why Throw a Blanket Away?
There are many reasons to throw an old blanket away, but here are a few key ones:
1. It’s dirty.
2. It’s not being used anymore.
3. It might be too small or too big for the person who needs it.
4. It might have holes in it or be in a terrible condition.
How Much Does It Cost to Dry a Blanket?
Drying a blanket can be done by using the dryer or by airing it out. Drying a blanket in the dryer is the quickest way to dry it, but it will cost more. It costs about $0.50 to dry a blanket in the dryer according to The Huffington Post. The downside to drying a blanket in the dryer is that it can create heat damage and shorten its life. If air-drying is chosen, ownership of an open window is necessary in order to allow fresh air into the room and circulate around the blanket, as this process will cause the fabric to ravel. Air-drying a blanket usually takes about two weeks, but it depends on how wet the blanket was when it was folded and how hot the room is where it will be stored.
How to Drying a Blanket
If you have an old throw blanket that you no longer need, there are a few things you can do with it. You can either donate it to charity or just keep it around for decoration.
You can dry it out by taking it outside and spreading it out on the ground. Make sure that the blanket is completely dry before storing it away again.
What to do With the Dried Blanket
If you have an old throw blanket that’s just not being used anymore, there are a few things you can do with it. You can give it to a friend or family member as a gift, donate it to charity, or hang it up as a decoration.
One option is to give the old blanket as a gift. Maybe your friend or family member is cold and needs a warm hug, or they love the outdoors and need some protection from the elements. If you’re giving the blanket as a gift, be sure to include a note telling your recipient what you plan to do with it once they receive it.
Another option is to donate the old blanket to charity. There are many organizations that accept blankets for donation, and most of them will pick up the blanket and recycle it or redistribute it to those who need it most.
Finally, if you don’t want to give the blanket away or don’t want to donate it, you can hang it up as decoration in your home. Old blankets make great additions to any room in your house – especially rooms that are cold or drafty. This way, not only will your friends and family members be comforted by the warmth of the blanket, but they’ll also enjoy looking at it hanging on the wall.
