Ivory Wool Throw Blankets
The idea of owning an off-white wool blanket may make you wonder, “How do you keep an off-white wool blanket clean?” or “How do you get stains out of an off-white throw blanket?” The idea of owning any kind of white fabric, ranging from clothes to table cloths to blankets, might seem a bit daunting. White materials are notoriously easier to get stained; or rather, it’s much easier to notice the stain once it’s there. If you own something like an ivory wool throw blanket or plan to buy one, it helps to know how to keep it clean.
First, wool requires a very delicate handling process. Regular washing should actually be avoided. However, there will come a time when it needs a thorough cleaning, so we will show you how to do that. Sometimes, all an ivory wool blanket will need is a good shaking. Keep it ventilated by shaking it out and hanging it up. Having it hung up and surrounded by air will help strip the fabric of dirt.
If you do need to clean your wool blanket because of a stain, opt for spot cleaning rather than washing the whole thing. Use a spray bottle to either just freshen up the entire blanket or target one specific spot. Avoid hot water and dry heat since this will lead to shrinkage of the fiber. Instead, fill a bottle of diluted vinegar and carefully spritz the affected area.
Think your wool blanket may need a more rigorous cleaning? First, gently bathe it with a splash of soap. If your blanket is starting to give off a slightly musty odor, it’s a good indication it needs a bath. Use a mild soap or an oil-based castile soap to very lightly scrub any dirty spots. Avoid detergents since they contain chemicals that will strip the fibers that are naturally designed to keep the blanket clean.
