    Default How to wash

    A mink blanket? Anyone have one?

    I tried google but they said to use a commercial machine ie heavy duty because it can get heavy. Surely I can do it at home?

    I put my queen size one in my washing machine twice now. It doesn't have an agitator though. It DOES get really heavy so you'll need to watch the machine if it starts rocking. Because it is so heavy it doesn't spin or wash very effectively. I probably would suggest getting it done professionally if it's really dirty and if your not a tight *** like me lol.

    Oh and it leaves sooo much fuzz everywhere!!!!!!

    Don't want to leave the house today- a predicted 43• day. It's 10am and already 30•.

    I've decided to put it in the front loader on the wool cycle with some wool wash. It's only baby sized (like a rug on the floor for her) so shouldn't cause too much trouble?
