washing blankets

cream wool blanket

I have a special way of cleaning my wool blankets without dry cleaning.

I wash them in the washing machine on the wool setting with cold water, and don’t add any detergent – just a cup of pickling vinegar. Then I hang them to dry.

They come out smelling clean and delicious, and get softer and softer with every wash.
