Plush fluffy plaid is rather a col­lec­tive name than a spe­cif­ic can­vas of a cer­tain com­po­si­tion. Clas­sic Plush is a long pile fab­ric with a soft front and a smooth back. A pile of wool, silk, cot­ton or poly­ester is stuffed onto a cot­ton base. The length of the fibers should not be less than 8 mil­lime­ters. You will find a large selec­tion of blan­kets in the cat­a­log of the Dream­catch­er online store. Obvi­ous­ly, such an imi­ta­tion of fur requires spe­cial care. Is it pos­si­ble to wash a plush blan­ket and how to do it right?

How to wash a blanket: general recommendations

What­ev­er mate­r­i­al a par­tic­u­lar blan­ket is made of, the need to put it in order on your own inevitably aris­es, because, like any oth­er house­hold items, it tends to get dirty. Of course, you can use dry clean­ing, but not every­one has such an oppor­tu­ni­ty, it is not cheap, and, final­ly, not every mate­r­i­al can with­stand the aggres­sive effects of chem­istry. It remains only to inde­pen­dent­ly mas­ter the rules of wash­ing, squeez­ing and dry­ing whim­si­cal prod­ucts. But first you need to decide what exact­ly you should not do with a plush blan­ket, regard­less of its com­po­si­tion and size:

    Read labels. Manufacturers indicate in detail what can and cannot be done with their blanket.
    Never use bleach or stain removers, especially if they contain chlorine. It is equally destructive for both natural and artificial fibers. Yellowness, loss of volume, thinning — these are just a few of the problems that the addition of chlorine-containing compounds during washing is fraught with.
    How to wash a plush blanket? Always use only liquid and gel detergents. They dissolve better in water, do not remain between the villi and are perfectly rinsed out.
    You should not actively wrinkle or twist the canvas, no matter what it consists of, anything can deform, and then it will not be so easy to return the blanket to its original shape.
    Before washing a blanket with a long pile, it is necessary to thoroughly shake it out, selecting all the specks entangled in the fibers. If this is not done, at the end you will get a heavily rolled up thing that will be easier to throw away than to restore fluffiness and softness to it.
    Washing by hand in the machine is not possible. When washing in the machine, be sure to carefully roll the blanket into a loose roll with the pile inside, so you can keep the direction of the piles and their uniformity.

How to care for a plush blanket made of natural materials?

How to wash a blan­ket made of nat­ur­al fibers? Wool, cot­ton, bam­boo fibre, nat­ur­al silk and fur are all very sen­si­tive to water tem­per­a­ture. It should not exceed 35–40 degrees. In addi­tion, for nat­ur­al fibers of ani­mal ori­gin, it is imper­a­tive to use a prod­uct with lano­lin. It pre­vents the pile from rolling and makes it soft and fluffy.

    As a detergent for any natural materials, it is best to use a gel solution for washing delicate items.
    Do not spin the blanket in a centrifuge, it is best to let the moisture drain naturally by placing the blanket on a wire rack. After the excess water drains, the blanket can be wrapped with a large piece of terry cloth or thick cotton — it will absorb the remaining moisture.
    Dry the plush blanket only on a horizontal surface, at room temperature, away from batteries, heaters and sunlight.
    After the product is completely dry, the pile can be gently straightened with a soft brush.

How to wash a plush synthetic blanket correctly

The man-made mate­ri­als from which long pile blan­kets are made include the pop­u­lar fleece, acrylic fiber, faux fur and poly­ester. Such blan­kets are eas­i­er to care for, more durable and do not cause any skin reac­tions, as they are absolute­ly hypoal­ler­genic. How to wash a syn­thet­ic blan­ket?

    Synthetic options should be washed, like wool and cotton blankets, in warm, but not hot, water using a liquid detergent. The water temperature for fleece and polyester products is 30 degrees, acrylic and artificial fur will not lose their properties even at 40 degrees Celsius.
    If you have a choice between machine wash and hand wash, it is better to choose hand wash. Synthetics are susceptible to mechanical stress.
    Soak the blanket for half an hour in a warm detergent solution, without wringing out or lifting the wet thing, drain the water, replacing it with a fresh, more concentrated washing solution. Gently and carefully remember the blanket in the water, without stretching or shrinking.
    Drain the solution and fill with clean water. You need to rinse as carefully as you wash the blanket.
    After all the detergent has been washed out of the fabric, leave the blanket to drain over the tub on the grate.
    Lay the wet product on a horizontal surface, aligning the corners and edges. Let dry naturally, comb lightly with a sparse brush.
