How To Properly Care For Different Types Of  Blankets

When purchasing a blanket, remember that in order to prolong its life, you need proper care. Only careful attitude and proper storage will allow the blanket to last longer.

 

IMPORTANT! After you bring your blanket home and unpack it, be sure to save the labels. When the need arises to wash the product, use the information from the tag and do everything right. Don't rely on labels sewn into the blanket. During operation, all inscriptions on them will be erased.

 

So, how to care?
