The cleaning of chunky knitted blankets is a difficult problem for many people. This article will introduce specific methods for cleaning chunky knitted blankets.
Depending on the type of yarn used in the knitted blanket, you can choose a machine washable blanket. However, if your knitted blanket uses loops and yarn, you need to wash the blanket by hand.The following are the specific steps for machine washing and hand washing chunky knitted blankets.
Machine Washing Your Chunky Knit Blanket
Some of the chunky yarns are definitely machine washable, so just check their labels to make sure.
1.If your blanket is made of acrylic, polyester or cotton, place it in a large lingerie bag for protection and drop it in the washing machine.
2.Add a dash of mild detergent to the washing machine and turn it on, selecting either the delicate or permanent-press cycle. Wash dark colors together in case the yarn bleeds.
3.Lay out a tarp or shower curtain in a safe place, and then place a clean white sheet on top of it. Reshape the blanket and lay it flat on the sheet to dry for 24 hours.
Hand-Washing Your Chunky Knit Blanket
1.Fill your bathtub or a large basin with cool water. Add a pinch of mild detergent and agitate the water to create suds.
2.Place the knit blanket in the water and swish it gently back and forth to work the suds into the fibers. Let the blanket soak for 15 minutes.
3.Drain the tub and refill it. Gently swish the clear water through the blanket. Drain, refill and repeat until the suds are gone. Press out as much of the excess water as you can by squeezing the blanket without wringing it.
4.Carefully lift the blanket from the tub and wrap it in clean, white bath towels. Roll the blanket in the towels, and squeeze to remove more water. Do not wring the knitted blanket.
5.Spread a plastic sheet or shower curtain on the floor where no one will disturb it. Carefully lay the blanket over the plastic sheet, smoothing it into its original shape. Leave the knitted blanket to dry for 24 hours. If the blanket is still damp, place a fresh sheet under it. You can speed the drying process by running a fan near the blanket.
