Are our quilts washable?
Yes, these quilts are indeed machine-washable! We advise adhering to these standards for ideal handling results:
- Wash in a washing machine with completely cold water on gentle cycle.
- Use light laundry soap, such as liquid Cheer for colors (No bleach or bleach alternatives. No Woolite or fabric softener.) For the first washing, add 1/2 cup vinegar and 2 tbsps of salt in addition to the laundry soap. This natural remedy stops bleed and helps to protect the colors in your quilt.
- Remove quilt when the washer stops to reduce creases as well as color-bleeding.
- Never put a quilt in the clothes dryer! Line completely dry on a windy day.
- Quilts can be dry-cleaned at your own risk, but we definitely advise washing.
