Machine wash cold. Minky and heat aren’t really friends and super hot water can melt the fibers so use cold water! If you’re dealing with something really gross on your blanket, warm water is okay. Hopefully that’s not a regular thing though. If it is, you’re definitely a mom and we respect that.
It’s best to wash your minky alone. This isn’t as big of an issue with our baby size blanket but our larger sizes need lots of room to get clean. You don’t want to stuff a bunch of other things in there to compete for the washing space.
Don’t use fabric softener or laundry pods. Since minky fibers are so fine, fabric softener has a hard time washing out and laundry pods don’t always dissolve completely in cold water. This can leave your blanket feeling a little crunchy. Definitely not what you want from your favorite blanket.
Tumble dry low or line dry. Use the low or no heat setting on your dryer. If you love dryer sheets, we recommend using one without fabric softener (see above), or dryer balls. A great option is to line dry your blanket then use the no heat setting on your dryer to fluff the blanket.
The heat will melt the fibers and ruin the blanket! In all honestly, your blanket will likely never look wrinkled but we feel like we need to mention it just incase.
