Is there anything more comforting than cuddling up in your favourite warm blanket on a cold winter’s night? If you have a cozy velour blanket and it’s been a while since it’s been washed, here are a few tips to keep it soft and fresh. It’s best to wash a velour blanket on its own to prevent any matting, pilling, or shedding. Wash in cold water, use a gentle cycle, and be sure to use a minimal amount of detergent to prevent the fabric from feeling too stiff. Shake out before drying in a dryer using a no heat setting.
