Can you put a heated blanket in the washing machine?
Wash briefly and gently.
Almost all modern electric blankets can be washed in your washing machine. Most manufacturers do not recommend a full wash cycle, however. In fact, most blankets only need a few minutes’ wash on your machine’s “delicate” or “gentle” cycle. Use only a small amount of a mild washing detergent.
How do you wash a heated blanket?
Sunbeam suggests pre-soaking your electric blanket in cold water with mild soap for 15 minutes before washing. Once it’s soaked, wash the blanket in mild soap and water on the “delicate” or “gentle” setting for 2 minutes. Then, rinse in cold, fresh water, and let it spin dry.

Can you dry a heated blanket?
Use a cool or air-only setting on your dryer. It is best to only partially dry in the dryer for about 20 minutes, and then remove the blanket while it is still damp and allow to finish air-drying on a clothesline or drying rack. High heat may shrink the blanket and damage the wires’ insulation.
