We recommend washing your Squirt Blanket™ on a similar setting to your towels or bed sheets washing cycle – one with a fast spin! It’s best to wash your Squirt Blanket™ separately on a cold or warm temperature cycle (20 degrees celsius maximum) adding in one scoop of washing liquid or powder.
If you wash your blanket on a delicate or gentle wash, the spin cycle will not remove the water effectively so we recommend a fast-spin wash. If you find yourself with a stain such as blood, wine or another bodily fluid, use a stain remover spray and soak for 3 - 5 minutes before adding it in the wash.
To dry your wet blanket you can either a) line-dry indoors or hang outside on the clothesline (colours may fade over time if in the sunshine for too long) or b) tumble dry on the lowest heat setting for 30 minutes. If your dryer is too hot, it could melt the inner TPU layer so please closely monitor which setting you use to dry your blanket for the first few washes so you can get to know the ideal length of time and setting to use for your size and style of blanket. If the inner layer melts in the dryer, Squirt Blanket™ is not liable for any damage as every dryer has different heat settings and standards. NOTE: Using the dryer may keep your blanket fluffier and softer compared to drying on the clothesline.
WARNING: Do not iron or dry clean and do not use fabric softener, bleach or vinegar on your blanket as it may compromise the integrity of the TPU layer.
If you notice your blanket has a scent or a smell after washing, you may want to add a tablespoon of bicarb or wash on a longer and slightly warmer cycle with more washing detergent, and tumble dry.
