The Shakti Weighted Blanket can be machine washed in a weight-compatible commercial or household front loader machine.
1. Check the machine’s weight capacity is compatible with a 16.5 lbs+ dry load prior to washing.
2. Wash The Blanket separately, checking it fits comfortably in the machine on its own.
3. Select the delicate cycle and use mild or eco-friendly detergent.
4. Air dry flat or tumble dry on low in a weight-compatible dryer
Avoid: all top-loading washing and drying machines, hanging The Blanket while it's wet (as this may stretch the weave), ironing, as well as fabric softeners or bleach.
It’s essential to check beforehand if the washing machine and tumble dryer model you're using can bear the full weight of your Blanket. Remember, your Blanket will get a bit heavier when it’s wet.
Top-loading washers and dryers usually contain central agitators or impellers that can tear or tangle the fabric of your blanket, so we recommend avoiding these machines.
The Weighted Blanket can also be spot cleaned with a damp cloth and liquid laundry detergent. For heavier soiling, it can be gently hand washed in cold water using a bathtub.
To keep your Blanket fresh, air it out frequently, then wash it when it needs some extra love.
Only store The Weighted Blanket once it is dry, in a cool, dry place.
