Many friends are not very clear about how to wash blankets correctly after buying them home. Here, a detailed summary of how to wash blankets will be provided for friends who have purchased blankets to know how to wash them.
Firstly, regarding the issue of how to wash blankets correctly, you need to first clarify which quality of blankets you purchase. The cleaning methods for different quality blankets vary. We roughly divide the quality of blankets into two large quantities based on the commonly sold ones in the current market. One type is pure wool blankets, and the other type is blankets made of synthetic fibers. The method of washing these two quality blankets is different.
Cleaning method for coral velvet blankets
Coral velvet is manufactured using imported DTY ultrafine fibers as raw materials. When used, it not only feels super soft and smooth, delicate and gentle, like baby skin, but also has delicate threads, thick texture, and softness. Washable without fading, shedding or pilling, and with strong water absorption performance.
Coral velvet is a type of textile fabric. Mainly used for home accessories, nightgowns, baby products, children's clothing, clothing lining, shoes and hats, toys, car accessories, craft products and other materials.
Compared with other textiles, its advantages are particularly obvious: in summary, it has a soft and delicate feel, does not shed hair, and is easy to dye.
Faced with such a comfortable coral velvet blanket, how can we avoid regular dry cleaning and what is the correct cleaning method? The editor provides the following suggestions.
When at home, there are two cleaning methods: machine wash and hand wash.
Machine washing: First, fold the blanket into a mesh bag and put it into the washing machine; Use general detergent and clean at room temperature, do not rinse with bleach; After cleaning, air dry naturally. Do not use rotary drying or ironing.
Hand washing: First, inject warm water at around 30 degrees Celsius into the container and add an appropriate amount of neutral detergent; Then immerse the blanket in a container and soak for about 20 minutes, then gently rub and wash repeatedly to release any stains from the blanket and remove any sewage; Rinse repeatedly with clean water, squeeze out water, and then air dry in a cool place. Do not expose to direct sunlight.
In daily use, the blanket should be frequently bathed in sunlight and gently patted to remove the sweat, dust, and dander adhering to the blanket. The fur should be carefully combed to keep the surface clean, fluffy, and soft. When collecting, it is important to prevent compression, which can maintain the elastic texture of the blanket and provide better care.
How to wash pure wool blankets
Wool blankets cannot be cleaned with a washing machine. Because the high-speed rotation of the washing machine can damage the wool blanket. Wool blankets are prone to deformation after washing. So, you can only do it by hand or take it to a dry cleaner. Soak the wool blanket in cold water for a period of time before cleaning, allowing it to be fully soaked. Then lift the blanket out, gently squeeze out some water, and gently rub it with your hands before applying soap. Do not twist the blanket dry, use your hands to squeeze it out of the water. Otherwise, the blanket is prone to deformation. Then, blankets should generally be dried in the shade and should not be directly exposed to the sun, as this will make the blankets hard, out of shape, and prone to hair loss. How to wash wool blankets is probably to pay attention to these issues.
How to wash blankets made of chemical fibers
There are generally two types on the market: polyester and acrylic. This type of blanket can be cleaned with a washing machine. But there's no need to add bubbles. Generally, cold water at around 20 degrees is suitable. Of course, hand washing is better, and the method for washing synthetic fiber blankets is probably similar to wool blankets (recommended: pillow core). If cleaning with a washing machine, remember not to dry it directly with the washing machine. It's about squeezing it dry with your hands. Blankets are mainly dried in the shade, which can better maintain the shape of the blanket and prevent hair loss. Secondly, if you want to make the blanket smoother after washing, you can add about one or two white vinegar during the next cleaning to make the washed blanket look more vibrant. Everyone should remember that no matter what type of blanket, do not use hot water bubbles. Using hot water bubbles not only makes the blanket prone to deformation, but also makes it more prone to shedding.
