Because flannel blankets are highly absorbent, they are generally lightweight when dry, but become heavy when soaked in water. At this time, if you choose to wash with a washing machine, the problem will arise. First, it puts a strain on the washing machine, as blankets require a gentler wash. Going for a low-profile option will add to the load, as the soaked blanket will get heavier. At the same time, the dehydration function of the blanket dehydration is not conducive to maintenance. Therefore, be careful when washing the blanket in the washing machine.
Therefore, when we clean the blankets, we must selectively machine wash them. As long as your blanket doesn't change much from washing or drying, you can wash it in the washing machine with confidence. Conversely, if your blanket has changed too much before and after the process, it is not suitable for washing in the washing machine. For example, pure wool blankets are not recommended for washing in the washing machine. Generally, the washing card of the blanket will indicate whether it can be washed with a washing machine. You can refer to the washing card on the blanket.
In terms of the maintenance of the blanket, it is also not good. For blanket care, it is best to hand wash the blanket. When washing the blanket by hand, put the blanket in the washing bucket, soak it with detergent for about 10 minutes, and then squeeze it gently with your hands. If there are small stains, you can gently wipe them with a soft brush, and then wash them with water several times.
