What's the best way to clean down and down alternative blankets?
As I’m sure many of you know (I’ve only mentioned it 8 trillion times here) I have horrible allergies. Kitties are getting a haircut on Monday and I want to clean my blankets and duvet cover.
Should I bring the blankets to a cleaner and insist that they are thoroughly cleaned? My machines in my building left my blanket sopping wet last time and there’s no spin cycle option. So I am hesitant to wash them here. Or should I bring them to a laundromat and wash them in over-sized machines?
Also, how do I ensure that all of the hair comes off the duvet before washing it (besides just shaking it out and using a lint brush)?
sorry for the long question!
