    Default How do i clean home made baby blankets?

    i was given a lot of home made baby blankets (knit, i think, but could be crocheted - don't know enough to know the difference) that i didn't want to use initially, but now I want to use them ... but how do i get them clean once they get dirty? can i use the washing machine? dryer? how long? detergent? thanks!

    I would clean them in hosiery bags on a gentle cycle after doing a colour run check.

    This is how I wash hand knitted baby clothes and they come out really good.
