Can blankets be washed in the washing machine?

Share to:

Blankets are very common household items, after a period of time, need to be cleaned, because of material problems, many people do not know blankets can be washed in the washing machine?

A. Can blankets be washed in the washing machine?

If the blanket is relatively light and thin, and is a common material, you can use the washing machine. But if it is a heavy blanket, or more expensive material, such as wool blanket, generally can not be washed in the washing machine, for two reasons: one is because the blanket is absorbent, after soaking in water will become very heavy, easy washing machine damage. The second reason is that the washing machine runs at high speed and can easily damage the fibre structure of the blanket, so it is generally not recommended to wash the more expensive materials in the washing machine.

B. Cleaning blankets need to pay attention to what aspects

1、When cleaning the blanket, because the blanket is not alkali-resistant, so it is very important to choose a neutral detergent to avoid damaging the fiber structure of the blanket.
If the blanket can be machine washed, it is recommended to choose a drum washing machine, which is less likely to damage the blanket. If conditions allow, it is recommended to choose the right temperature for better results.
3、If you choose to wash the blanket by hand, you can choose about 30 degrees of warm water, and then use your hands gently, note that you cannot use force to scrub the blanket, otherwise it is also easy to damage the blanket.
4、If it is a woolen blanket, the water temperature will exceed 30 degrees Celsius, it will shrink and may even be deformed, so the washing temperature must be controlled.
5、When washing the blanket, you can add the right amount of softener, so that the blanket is less likely to generate static electricity after drying. But be careful, never use bleach containing chlorine, otherwise it will cause damage to the blanket.
