Blankets are the one thing that you want to be softer than anything else, and nothing ruins a perfect comfy-cozy moment like rough, scratchy fabric. Here’s how to be soft-blanket-ready for a lazy afternoon of football, or a night of movie marathons.
How to wash your favorite blankets:
Different fabrics require different laundry care. So first, read the label to learn if your blanket is machine or hand wash.
Washing your blankets by hand:
If “hand wash only,” use a fabric-appropriate detergent; work up some sudsy, lukewarm water; and gently press through the blanket. Rinse out in lukewarm water.
Machine washing your blankets:
If your blanket can be machine washed, simply wash in cold water using the gentle cycle. Of course, if the label says otherwise, always listen to the label.
The secret to comfier, cozier blankets:
The secret to softer, comfier, cozier blankets is Downy® Fabric Conditioner. It not only softens your fabrics, but also helps protect them from getting damaged in the wash.
How to dry your favorite blankets:
If you can machine dry, use the lowest heat settings possible. Downy Fabric Conditioner will also provide extra protection from fading. If the machine isn’t an option, hang your blankets to dry.
Make your blankets smell more inviting than ever:
To make your blankets extra inviting, use Downy Infusions™ Sweet Dreams™ to leave your blankets smelling like it’s naptime, all the time.
