An electric blanket can keep you warm on cold winter nights. Because it contains heating elements, it cannot be handled like a regular blanket; it requires special care. If not, the cables can be damaged and will need to be replaced. When an electric blanket gets dirty, you can wash it in a washing machine, but not in the same way as a regular blanket. There are things to do and things not to do to properly wash the blanket.

Tips for washing an electric blanket

● Do not iron the electric blankets for any reason. The heat damages the cover of the cables. So if it is very wrinkled, we can smooth the wrinkles with the hand, when the blanket is still wet or just removed from the dryer.

● You should avoid using very hot water or harsh chemicals to wash an electric blanket.

● To remove stains from electric blankets, it is best to use a mild spot remover.

● Heat damages the cable sheath, so neither the wash water nor the dryer should be hot.
