Let's face it, our beloved throw pillows and blankets witness movie nights, marathon cuddles, and maybe even the occasional snack mishap. But when was the last time they got a proper spa day? Fear not, cleaning warriors! This guide will whip your fuzzy friends back into shape, leaving them fresh, fluffy, and ready for more snuggles.

Before You Dive In 👇

  1. Check the Label: Always heed the care instructions! Some fabrics require delicate handling, while others can withstand a warrior wash.
  2. Pre-Treat Stains: Tackle any visible stains with a gentle stain remover before washing. Shout it out loud (metaphorically, of course) at stubborn ones, but avoid harsh chemicals.
  3. Zip It Up, Button It Down: Secure any zippers, buttons, or closures to prevent snags and tears during the wash.

Washing Warriors, Assemble! 🧺

For Machine-Washable Pillows & Blankets:

  • Choose the Right Detergent: Skip the harsh stuff! Opt for gentle laundry detergent or a natural cleaning alternative.
  • Temperature Check: Warm water is usually safe, but refer to the care label for specifics. Cold water is great for colors and delicates.
  • Gentle Cycle: Give your plush pals a soft touch. The delicate or gentle cycle is your friend.
  • Dry Wisely: Tumble dry on low heat or air-dry for fluffier results. Add a couple of tennis balls to the dryer for extra fluff (but check if safe for the fabric).

For Hand-Washing Heroes:

  • Fill a tub or sink with cool or lukewarm water.
  • Add a gentle detergent and swish to create suds.
  • Submerge your pillow or blanket and gently hand-wash. Avoid aggressive scrubbing.
  • Rinse thoroughly with clean water until the suds disappear.
  • Squeeze out excess water gently, but don't wring.
  • Lay flat on a drying rack or clean towels to air-dry. Avoid direct sunlight.
