How to wash a blan­ket in a wash­ing machine is not an idle ques­tion. Large blan­kets look lux­u­ri­ous, spec­tac­u­lar and styl­ish. But tak­ing care of them can cause a lot of prob­lems. Espe­cial­ly if you are a fan of volu­mi­nous and warm bed­spreads. Soon­er or lat­er, even dark-col­ored blan­kets have to be washed. Some pre­fer to give a bulky item to spe­cial­ized laun­dries or dry clean­ers, some­one fights for clean­li­ness with­out out­side help, wash­ing and dry­ing a blan­ket on the street, some­one has their own bath …

If there is a mod­ern wash­ing machine, wash­ing a large blan­ket is sim­pli­fied. Notice we are talk­ing about an auto­mat­ic type machine! In acti­va­tor type machines, it is bet­ter not to wash any blan­kets at all. It is dif­fi­cult to con­trol the speed and inten­si­ty of rota­tion in them, the can­vas will def­i­nite­ly stretch and deform. And if a blan­ket with a long pile. Putting it in order then it will be sim­ply impos­si­ble. How then to wash a blan­ket in an auto­mat­ic machine?

You can wash the blan­ket in an auto­mat­ic wash­ing machine if it is designed for a large amount of laun­dry. Oth­er­wise, you will not be able to wash the blan­ket in the machine, it sim­ply does not fit there. In addi­tion, if you are think­ing about how to wash a blan­ket in an auto­mat­ic machine, it is worth clar­i­fy­ing some points:

    Be sure to read the instructions on the label of the blanket before washing your blanket in the machine. In it, in addition to the composition, the main recommendations for choosing the temperature, method and mode of washing must be indicated.

    Accord­ing to the com­po­si­tion of the linen, select the wash­ing pow­der and wash as indi­cat­ed on the label. Don’t for­get to add con­di­tion­er when rins­ing.

    The choice of washing program also depends on the composition of the material. However, you should not indicate a temperature above 40 C.
    The spin speed should not exceed 400. If your washing machine does not have such values, just select the minimum.

IMPORTANT!

It is best to give pref­er­ence to liq­uid deter­gents, they are eas­i­er to rinse out, espe­cial­ly if you decide to wash a plush blan­ket. Do not use bleach on col­ored items or blan­kets made of syn­thet­ics (it may turn yel­low) and vir­gin wool (bleach destroys wool fibers). It is bet­ter to refuse the “dry­ing” func­tion.

How to wash a synthetic blanket in a washing machine?

Syn­thet­ic blan­kets, at first glance, are eas­i­er to care for than prod­ucts made from nat­ur­al mate­ri­als. How­ev­er, do not for­get that syn­thet­ic fibers should not be washed in a wash­ing machine using chlo­rine-based bleach­es, sub­ject­ed to high tem­per­a­tures and inten­sive spin­ning. It will no longer be pos­si­ble to return the prod­uct to its orig­i­nal shape after it has been deformed in the drum of the machine.

Now the so-called fleece blan­kets are very pop­u­lar — this is a dense syn­thet­ic fab­ric with a pile. Depend­ing on the qual­i­ty and lev­el of den­si­ty, the pile can be short or long — well stuffed or sparse. In any case, you need to wash such ter­ry blan­kets with extreme care — the vil­li should not stick togeth­er or fall off. To obtain a soft cloth after dry­ing, be sure to add a light con­di­tion­er when rins­ing.

If it is not pos­si­ble to wring out the blan­ket on the machine, just let it drain over the bath­tub, and then dry it at nat­ur­al room tem­per­a­ture. Do not hang the blan­ket to dry near heaters or in direct sun­light so that the fab­ric retains its col­or inten­si­ty.

Choosing the right mode for washing a blanket in a washing machine

Mod­ern indus­try pro­duces three main types of blan­kets:

      products made of natural wool or other materials of natural origin (cotton, bamboo, linen);
      blankets made of mixed fabrics (natural fiber is supplemented with synthetic to increase strength and wear resistance);
      synthetic fabrics from polyester, acrylic fibers, artificial cashmere, fleece.

Each of these three types needs its own wash cycle. As a rule, mod­ern wash­ing machines have a wool wash­ing mode, so you can wash a woolen blan­ket in a wash­ing machine. It auto­mat­i­cal­ly sets the water tem­per­a­ture to low and selects the del­i­cate wash. Mixed and syn­thet­ic blan­kets are also best washed in a wash­ing machine at a tem­per­a­ture of no more than 40 C. And the num­ber of rev­o­lu­tions dur­ing the spin cycle should not be more than 400.

The degree is important: at what temperature to wash the blanket

Decid­ed to wash the blan­ket? The choice of tem­per­a­ture also plays an impor­tant role. Here the restric­tions can be quite severe. For exam­ple:

        fleece products can be washed at a temperature not exceeding 35 C;
        You can wash a synthetic blanket at a temperature in the range from 30C to 60C;
        microfiber is contraindicated in water hotter than 60C;
        linen and cotton should be washed at a temperature not exceeding 30C, otherwise they will shrink or deform;
        cashmere products should not be washed in a washing machine at all — only by hand and only with shampoo;
        wondering how to wash a wool blanket? Wool is quite comfortably washed at a temperature of 30 to 40 degrees, as well as fur.

Keeping softness: how to wash blankets made of delicate materials?

Soft and del­i­cate mate­ri­als include not only nat­ur­al wool fab­rics. How to wash a wool blan­ket in a wash­ing machine? Cash­mere or meri­no is gen­er­al­ly best washed by hand, with sham­poo. Rinse with­out wring­ing, leav­ing the blan­ket to drain on the wire rack. Dry­ing is allowed only on a hor­i­zon­tal sur­face. First, all the edges and cor­ners of the blan­ket must be aligned.

Del­i­cate syn­thet­ics, such as microfiber or fleece, also need extra care. If your blan­ket has a long pile, be sure to shake it thor­ough­ly before wash­ing, you need to shake out any specks, oth­er­wise they will tight­ly “roll” into the blan­ket and it will be impos­si­ble to pull them out. Where can I buy the long hair ver­sion? You can buy a blan­ket in Moscow in the Dream­catch­er online store.
