Wash­ing a blan­ket in the wash­ing machine is a great way. It does not require much effort and almost always guar­an­tees excel­lent results. Of course, if you know the fea­tures of the mate­r­i­al from which it is made. In order not to spoil the thing after the first wash, it is nec­es­sary to decide in what mode and at what tem­per­a­ture to wash, as well as how to wring out and dry.

What to wash fleece in?

The main qual­i­ties of the mate­r­i­al for which fleece is so high­ly val­ued are its soft­ness and the abil­i­ty to per­fect­ly retain heat. How­ev­er, if the fleece item is not prop­er­ly cared for, its char­ac­ter­is­tics may change and not for the bet­ter. To appre­ci­ate the vari­ety and bright­ness of fleece mod­els, just look at the cat­a­log of blan­kets on the web­site of the Dream­catch­er online store.

First you need to remem­ber that a fleece blan­ket is syn­thet­ic. And like any oth­er non-nat­ur­al fab­ric, fleece requires a care­ful atti­tude. In no case should you use deter­gents with an aggres­sive com­po­si­tion in which chlo­rine is present. Espe­cial­ly if the blan­ket is light. Chlo­rine destroys the fibers, mak­ing them rigid, with a char­ac­ter­is­tic yel­low­ish tinge. It is best to use a mild wash­ing gel for del­i­cate fab­rics. Why not pow­der? Yes, because the fleece has a fleecy tex­ture and the gran­ules poor­ly dis­solved in warm water are not rinsed out even after repeat­ed attempts. If there is no spe­cial liq­uid prod­uct avail­able and you plan to wash it by hand, and not in a wash­ing machine, it is best to replace it with ordi­nary laun­dry soap, also pre-dis­solved in water.

Water temperature

Tem­per­a­ture char­ac­ter­is­tics when wash­ing in the machine and on the hands of fleece items also play an impor­tant role. If there are traces of heavy pol­lu­tion on the blan­ket, then before putting it in the drum of the wash­ing machine, we advise you to soak it in a warm, weak­ly con­cen­trat­ed solu­tion of deter­gent for half an hour. Some­times this is enough to get rid of the dirt.

The tem­per­a­ture for wash­ing a fleece blan­ket should not exceed 35 degrees. Recall that syn­thet­ics are sen­si­tive to high tem­per­a­tures and after wash­ing such a blan­ket in hot water, you can sim­ply “weld” it, and the dirt will firm­ly eat into the fibers.

By hand or by machine?

  1. If you have the choice to wash your blan­ket in the wash­ing machine or by hand, choose a hand wash. This method does not deform the can­vas, while main­tain­ing the shape of the prod­uct. For machine wash, choose the most gen­tle set­ting. Since high-den­si­ty fleece blan­kets are quite bulky, make sure your blan­ket will fit in the drum before you decide to machine wash.
  2. It is not rec­om­mend­ed to wring out a fleece blan­ket after both machine and hand wash­ing. It is enough just to put it on the grate and let the excess mois­ture drain freely. Dry­ing in the machine is unac­cept­able in prin­ci­ple. After it, the plaid will look rolled up, untidy and, most like­ly, will lose its shape. But adding a lit­tle con­di­tion­er when rins­ing is not only pos­si­ble, but also nec­es­sary. Mod­ern air con­di­tion­ers help to avoid the accu­mu­la­tion of sta­t­ic elec­tric­i­ty, which means that the blan­ket will not attract dust so active­ly and it will need to be washed less often.
  3. Dry the fleece blan­ket away from direct sun­light and heat­ing appli­ances. It is best to lay out a slight­ly damp thing on a hor­i­zon­tal sur­face, straight­en­ing the formed folds and creas­es. Dry­ing on a clothes­line is unde­sir­able, since after it a clear­ly vis­i­ble kink will remain on the blan­ket, the pile will be tak­en, and the prod­uct may stretch out.
