I have received many homemade baby blankets from relatives and I was wondering how I might wash these before the baby without ruining them? I was thinking of doing a gentle wash with a baby safe detergent. Any thoughts? Thanks.

You can hand wash them or if you have a delicate cycle on the machine. I would then airdry, do not put in dryer unless it is air only.

I put mine inside of a pillow case, depending on the size of them it may take u a few pillow cases, and afew loads of wash. I then tie the pillow case closed and put it in the washing machine, on regular cycle. I dry mine in the dryer but only on low heat or air fluff.

I love to crochet. Yes gentle cycle baby detergent and fabric softner. Dry on a lower heat also. You could even wash them on regular cycle. They are a lot stronger then you think that is for sure. My daughters, who is now 4.5, is still going fine and have washed hers with towels and everything else on regular wash. Some of the yarn though gets very rough if you do not use a fabric softner.

It should be fine either way you want to wash it. My aunt gave me a handmade blanket for my 16th birthday and its always been washed in the regular wash cycle on regular heat and still looks great!

I washed mine on the gentle cycle with other delicate clothing and dried it on low or no heat for a couple minutes and then laid it out to dry the rest of the way. I am sure other ways are just fine too - just what you feel comfortable with I guess. :) Hope this helps!
