How to Wash Blankets and How Often to Wash

Although skin contact with a blanket is not as common as bed sheets, the habit of washing blankets should also not go unnoticed. Unwittingly, blankets are also often exposed to a lot of dirt.

If you want to make sure your blanket is free of dirt, washing it should not be careless. To eradicate mites and allergens, you can wash your blankets with warm water around 50 ?. However, also note that there are some ingredients that are not recommended for washing with warm water. Here are some of them.

How to wash a fleece blanket

This blanket, which is made of synthetic fabric with a blend of recycled materials, has a soft and lightweight texture. To be able to make the softness more durable, of course the correct washing technique is needed.

Wash blankets in cold water using enough detergent. If using an automatic washing machine, set the spin to gentle cycle. At the rinsing stage, add liquid softener clothes.

After the washing process is complete, it's best to dry the blanket by drying it as usual so as not to damage the appearance and texture of the soft fur on the blanket.

How to wash a wool blanket

Washing blankets with wool must also be done carefully so as not to make the texture damaged and shrink. Keep in mind that some wool blankets are not recommended for washing with water, so check the washing label before you decide to clean it.

As usual, wash with enough detergent in cold water. For washing machine users, set the cycle at gentle cycle. Just let the machine spin for one minute to avoid stretching fabric. Dry blankets in the sun.

How to wash knitted blankets

Maintaining the quality of knit blankets may be a little more difficult than other types of blankets. Incorrect washing can cause tangles and affect the shape of the blanket. Especially if you use a washing machine, often you have trouble removing the blanket because the thread is stuck.

If you still want to use the machine, wrap a knit blanket in a washing mesh bag to protect the yarn from the blanket. Adjust the rotation at a gentle or medium speed. After the washing process is complete, spread out blankets and clothes as usual.

How to wash blankets by hand
For those of you who don't have a washing machine or are worried that the blanket will be damaged, you can also wash yourself manually.

Fill the wash basin with cold water, add detergent and mix until slightly foamy. Enter a blanket and soak in water, then rub once in each section. After cleaning from dirt, press excess water on the blanket without squeezing it so it doesn't cause damage.

Repeat the steps until the foam trail is gone, then hang and dry in the sun to dry.
