The Best Way to Wash Wool and Cotton Blankets

Vinegar Tip #10

Wool or Cotton Blankets: freshen these blankets by washing them in a gentle cycle with 2 ½ cups vinegar.

My Verdict: I gathered two quilts out of my closet that looked like they could use some freshening up. After washing them with vinegar they did seem to be a little less stiff and slightly more fresh. I am not sure about wool but I think that vinegar did help my cotton blankets. Of course I am pretty sure that I have washed my blankets with regular detergent and no vinegar and had the same result.
