Blankets and sheets are the things you want to be softer than anything else, and nothing ruins a perfect cozy moment like rough, scratchy fabric. Here’s how to be ready to relax at the end of the day with linens you love.
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 bed linens by hand
Use a fabric appropriate detergent; work up some sudsy, lukewarm water; and gently press through the blanket. Sheets can be washed more rigorously. Rinse out in lukewarm water.
Machine washing your bed linens
If your blankets and sheets 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.
