Embrace Summer Freshness: Why Washing Your Doona and Blankets After Winter Is a Must-Do!

Ah, the frosty days of winter are slowly melting away, making room for the blooming beauty of summer. As nature sheds its wintery coat, it’s the perfect time for us to shed ours too, or more accurately, the cosy blankets and doonas that have been our winter companions. But before you stash them away, there’s an essential step that often gets overlooked in the transition to summer -giving your beloved winter wraps a good wash.

Why Bother Washing Your Doona and Blankets?

Let’s face it, we spend hours upon hours snuggled up in our doonas and blankets during the chilly winter months. They provide warmth, comfort, and a cosy sanctuary when the temperatures drop. However, all that hibernating comes at a cost – your winter essentials accumulate dust, dead skin cells, sweat, and even some crumbs from those late-night snacks.

The Perks of a Summer Clean

First things first, washing your doona and blankets after winter offers a refreshing reset. It’s like giving them a spa day! Removing all the accumulated grime not only ensures they look and smell fresh but also contributes to a healthier sleeping environment. Nobody wants to cuddle up with a dust bunny, right?

Say Goodbye to Allergens

Dust mites and allergens love to make themselves at home in the warmth and cosiness of blankets and doonas. A thorough wash can bid these unwelcome guests farewell, reducing the risk of allergies and creating a cleaner, healthier space to snuggle up in.

Prolong Their Lifespan

Giving your winter companions a regular wash can significantly extend their lifespan. Dirt and oils can break down the fibres in your blankets and doonas, leading to wear and tear. A good wash preserves their quality and ensures they’ll be ready to cocoon you in comfort next winter.

The ‘How-To’ of Doona and Blanket Washing

Now that we’ve covered the ‘why’, let’s delve into the ‘how.’ Washing these items might seem daunting, especially if you’ve got a king-sized doona, but fear not! Laundromatchis the unsung hero of the laundry world. We’ve got the capacity, the equipment, and the know-how to handle these larger-than-life laundry loads.

Tips for a Successful Laundering Adventure

  1. Read the Label: Check the care label for specific washing instructions. Different materials may require different settings.
  2. Pre-treat Stains: Got a stubborn stain from that midnight hot chocolate mishap? Address it before tossing the whole thing in the wash.
  3. Load Size Matters: For optimal results, don’t overload the machine. Give your doona and blankets room to move for a thorough wash.
  4. Use the Right Settings: Select the appropriate water temperature and cycle based on the fabric and any specific instructions.
  5. Dry Thoroughly: Ensure your doona and blankets are completely dry before storing them. Dampness can lead to mildew, which is not the kind of surprise you want when you pull them out next winter.
