Usually, people cannot sleep without a blanket even in summer, as it is an important attribute for a comfortable night's rest. However, over time, like any fabric, it accumulates dust and dirt.

While bed linen can be easily washed in the washing machine and enjoy cleanliness, a blanket is not so easy. That's why Express has shared a life hack that will help you clean it easily and quickly.

Although washing a blanket in the washing machine seems to be the easiest way to clean it, it is not always possible. Some blankets are too big or delicate to machine wash. As a result, many people simply forget to clean them and use the same blanket for years.

However, you should clean your blanket at least once a year. Because over time, dust, sweat, sebum, and various bacteria inevitably accumulate in it. Fortunately, there is one effective method to clean a duvet without a washing machine.

Sunlight
