How to Clean Every Blanket You’ll Use This Winter

Different Types of Blankets Require Different Washing Methods

It’s that time of year where all of the extra blankets come out—a few throw blankets in the living room, a heated blanket in the bed, extra blankets in the kids rooms, you might even have a blanket at work. Since we spend so much of our lives wrapped in warm blankets, it’s important to know how to wash every single type!

Of course, not all blankets can simply be washed in the washer and dryer easily. So, we’ve pulled together a list of how to clean your favorite winter blankets.

Crochet Blanket

Hand wash your favorite crochet blankets with a mild detergent in cold water. Gently soak and work the soap in, but don’t scrub hard. Rinse with cold water and dry by laying the crochet blanket flat on top of an old towel.

Heated Blanket

First and foremost, be sure to unplug your heated blanket and remove all cords before starting. Soak the blanket in lukewarm water mixed with mild laundry detergent for 15 minutes. Once completed, rinse and squeeze to remove access water but don’t wring it. Then, hang dry the blanket. Before plugging in and using your heated blanket once it’s completely dry, be sure to stretch out the blanket to its original shape.

Fleece Blanket

Fleece blankets can be washed in the washing machine but should only be washed with other fleece items to avoid abrasion. Wash on the gentle cycle with warm water. When done, put your fleece blanket in the dryer on the gentle cycle.

Wool Blanket

You can air clean your wool blanket by hanging it up indoors in an area with a lot of air circulation. Because wool blankets can take more time to dry, you can also set up fans to get air moving more.

Once you’re wrapped up in your clean, cozy blanket, the last thing you’ll want to do is clean. Let the professionals handle the cleaning instead so you can relax! Visit The Cleaning Authority today for a free online estimate.
