Spring is here and we are ready to welcome summer.
With the cold winter nights gone, this is the perfect time to wash those heavy blankets and pack them away until next year.
Many heavy blankets cannot go into the washing machine.
So, if you don’t want to take your blankets to the laundry and prefer to hand wash, don’t fret.
We have the perfect tips to help you do a good job.
Start by pouring water into a tub and add washing powder (remember not to not add too much water as it will rise when you put in the blanket).
Soak the blanket in the water for at least an hour.
Stomp your feet on the blanket repeatedly for about fifteen minutes. This doubles as a great workout!
Remove the water from the tub.
Pour in clean water and put the blanket in again and check if the water is clean.
If it is still dirty, repeat the washing process again.
Rinse the blanket.
Hang until it is dry.
