How to Wash a Photo Blanket at Home. Using laundry detergent to wash photo blankets

You wouldn’t wash a wool sweater the same way as a pair of jeans. Every kind of fabric needs to be treated a certain way, and sure enough there are some specific techniques you should use when washing photo blankets too. Here are the top tips from our experts:

  1. Wash photo blankets separately or together with similar colors. Our blankets are protected against color bleed, but it’s better to separate your laundry by colors for extra peace of mind.

  2. Use mild liquid detergent made for colored clothes – this will prevent your blanket from fading

  3. Don’t use bleach or fabric softener as these can damage the blanket fibers

  4. Check any stain removers you use are safe for polyester fabrics

  5. Don’t iron, steam, or dry-clean photo blankets. The powerful chemical solvents used in dry cleaning can damage the blanket material, and high temperatures can too.

Follow these simple rules when caring for your blanket and you’ll be able to enjoy its vivid colors and crisp resolution for many years.
