There’s just one last thing that you have to figure out -- and that’s how to clean and maintain your weighted blanket.

How to wash a weighted blanket (Hush Blanket)

If you’re intending to purchase a Hush Blanket, you’ll have it easy when it comes to washing and cleaning your blanket.

All you need to do is pop off your blanket cover and throw it into the washing machine, and that’s about it!

More specifically, here are the steps:

  1. Open the zipper and remove the inner weight from your blanket.
  2. Untie the hooks, then place the mink cover in the wash.
  3. Add any sort of soft detergent, and wash on cold.

For best results, wash your blanket cover alone -- don’t mix it together with your other laundry. If you throw other clothes in, this creates extra friction in the wash, which in turn causes your blanket cover to wear out more quickly.

To dry your blanket, simply hang it evenly over your laundry line. Don’t use tumble dry -- this will damage your blanket.

As for your inner weighted layer: because this is protected by the mink cover, it doesn’t get dirty easily, but in the event that you DO want to wash it, we recommend hand-washing it gently.

Again, hang it to dry -- avoid using a dryer here.

How to wash a weighted blanket (other brands)

If you want to figure out how to clean a weighted blanket (that’s not a Hush Blanket), go ahead and look at the care instructions provided by the brand or manufacturer.

Note that not ALL weighted blankets can go in the wash or dryer.

If you have a weighted blanket that’s filled with plastic poly pellets, for instance, those pellets might melt in the dryer.
