  • Always remove the cover & wash the cover and inner weighted sleeve separately

 

How Do I prolong the life of the fleece Minky cover?

1. Remove the cover: 
Locate the concealed zipper and remove the inner weighted sleeve. Unties the corner ribbons.
2. Outside Out: 
In order to protect the cover ribbons always wash the cover with the outside facing out.
3. Pre Treat Stains: 
Treat stains or soiled spots with a drop of dishwashing liquid. Allow the liquid to soak into the stain for 10 minutes, and then blot away as much of the soap as possible with a paper towel to lift the stain. Do not rub the stain because you may spread it or press it deeper into the fabric.
4. Wash
Place the blankets in a washing machine. To prevent abrasion with other clothes, it is best to wash minky fleece items together, combining like colors. Before you begin, set the washer on the gentle cycle. Stronger washing cycles may cause the fleece to form knots. Use only warm, not hot, water on fleece. Add laundry detergent to the washing machine, but do not use a laundry detergent that contains bleach. Avoid fabric softeners when washing fleece because they will damage the water-repellent finish that is applied to many fleece items during manufacturing.
 
5. Dry
Tumble dry fleece blankets on the gentle cycle with low heat. Never use a high heat setting on minky blankets, as it will damage the fabric. Remove the blankets immediately after the dryer stops and fold them to prevent wrinkles. If the blankets are too fluffy, lay them on a flat surface and press them down with your hands. Make sure to never iron fleece blankets. Irons will melt the synthetic fabric and leave marks on the fleece. If you have the ability and the weather permits, consider hanging your fleece blankets outdoors to dry for a fresh smell.
