Our "mink" blankets
can be either machine-washed or professionally dry-cleaned.
Unlike the blankets that most of us
have had in the past that tend to clump up and become dull after
washing, our blankets will look very close to brand new for years even
after multiple washings, IF you follow our care instructions.
We recommend using the same
procedures one would use in cleaning any other fine washable: using
a mild soap and cold water, setting your machine on “gentle cycle”,
and “tumble dry”, using no heat!
We can't over emphasize that last
statement enough about using no heat, both in the water and in the
dryer, to keep your blanket looking like new for years to come, even
after many washings! (Using heat will make the long acrylic fibers
Setting your washing machine on
"gentle" cycle" is also extremely important.
Your mink blanket will actually be
softer after your wash it. A “starch like” substance called
“sizing” is used in manufacturing and removing it will make your
blanket even more plush and comfortable.
Some people prefer professional dry
cleaning. We simply suggest making sure the dry cleaner you select has
experience in this kind of product. Although your mink blanket is very
easily cleaned, we would not want someone “practicing” on your
Many people use our mink blankets
for wall hangings. Being so lightweight, we suggest simply using small
finish nails to hang them on the wall. Although one could make a
mounting bracket that the blanket would attach to, it is much easier
simply to nail it to the wall using small finish nails.
However, if you prefer, it would be
almost as easy to simply staple or nail the blanket to a piece of
thin molding and then mount this to the wall.
Mounting it to brick or concrete is
a bit more difficult. As we suggested above concerning our area rugs/
wall hangings, we recommend asking someone at Home Depot or any other
hardware store for suggestions.
