Storage Ideas for Softer Blankets


Don’t treat moths to a fine meal of your homemade or store-bought woolen sweaters and blankets. When putting them into storage, wrap your woolens in a few sheets of newspaper (be sure to tape up the corners). It will keep away the moths, and keep out dust and dirt.

For an effortless and foolproof way to keep blankets and quilts securely bundled before they go into temporary storage, wrap them up in large “rubber bands” made from the waistbands from your used pantyhose. You can reuse the bands year after year if needed.

Add 2 cups white vinegar to your washer’s rinse water (or a washtub filled with water) to remove soap residue from both cotton and wool blankets before drying. This will also leave them feeling fresh and soft as new.
