If it is a quilt bought from the Kool Kids Bedding online store then you should first check to see if there are washing instructions on a label attached to the quilt and follow those directions closely. If there isn't feel free to contact us and we can send some through to you.
For regular quilts the following process is a reliable way to wash:
- Use cold or warm water.
- Put only the quilt in the machine and select a regular warm/cold water wash cycle.
- Once the wash cycle is complete, put the machine on again for a regular cold/cold water wash cycle, but this time don’t add any detergent. This makes sure that there are no traces of detergent left that may damage the strands of the fabric.
Once you have finished washing your quilt you will need to dry it. For most well-made quilts with good quality fabric it is usually safe to just throw the quilt in the tumble drier on a regular hot cycle like you would with your clothes.
It’s always goo to naturally dry it in the air, better for the quilt and the environment.
Make sure you are careful to avoid direct sunlight however as this can fade the colours in the fabric of the quilt. Don’t wring out a quilt as this places unnecessary stress on the quilt and could cause permanent creasing.
