How To Wash And Care For Your Hoodie Blanket
Knowing how to properly wash and care for your Snuggy hoodie blanket is essential to keeping it in top-tier condition. You want your hoodie blanket to be warm and soft for as long as possible, and while Snuggys are designed to last, there are a few things you can do to help it along the way.
In this blog, we’ll outline the best way to wash your Snuggy and any other tips and tricks for keeping it feeling like brand new. Let’s get started!
Why your Snuggy deserves to be looked after
At Snuggy, we’re all about crafting premium quality products that wrap you in comfort and provide the ultimate cosy experience. Our hoodie blankets are made from flannel fleece with a super-soft sherpa fleece interior to create a luxurious, sheepskin-like feel.
Despite their exceptional softness, Snuggys are extremely durable and manufactured to last. Each one is hand-crafted from sumptuously thick materials that can withstand heavy usage.
You can rest assured that your Snuggy can be thrown in the washing machine time and time again without falling to pieces. Still, it doesn’t hurt to take good care of it!
If you look after your Snuggy properly, it will last for years. We’ve designed them this way deliberately to avoid waste – which is good for the environment as well as your wallet.
Our company ethos revolves around comfort, quality and sustainability. Our versatile Snuggy hoodie blankets deliver on all three of these qualities, and taking good care of yours will ensure things stay that way.
How to wash your hoodie blanket
Unlike some other brands, our hoodie blankets can be washed as much as you like with no fear of causing damage. Here’s how you can keep yours clean and fresh for every wear.
We’re on a mission to save the planet, which means our Snuggys are too. Cleaning yours at a low temperature (we recommend 30 degrees), not only conserves energy but also preserves the fabric’s quality. It’s a win-win for you and Mother Earth.
Wash inside out and with similar colours
Washing your Snuggy inside out helps to keep its fleecy fabric in good condition, so you can enjoy its softness for longer. We also recommend washing with similar colours to keep its vibrant aesthetic intact.
Use a mild detergent
Harsh chemicals aren’t great for your skin or your Snuggy. You can preserve the fabric’s integrity by opting for a mild detergent – and don’t worry, it will still come out of the machine as clean as a whistle.
Tumble dry on cool
The super-soft sherpa fleece that lines our hoodie blankets can be sensitive to heat. To prevent unwanted shrinkage or pilling, it’s best to tumble dry your Snuggy on a cool setting. Alternatively, you can air dry it – just make sure it’s hung up away from any radiators.
Do not iron
Because Snuggys don’t deal well with heat, we also advise that you don’t iron yours. The type of material that we use and the way that it is woven make it naturally resistant to creasing. Yours should be wrinkle-free and ready to go as soon as you get it out of the dryer.
Follow the label instructions
Every Snuggy comes with a care label telling you how to wash it and any unique considerations for the specific design. Always defer to the instructions on the label, as they will be the most accurate for your Snuggy.
How to care for your hoodie blanket
To keep your Snuggy in prime condition, here are some additional tips.
Softness is the hallmark of a Snuggy. To keep it that way for as long as possible, avoid using fabric conditioner when washing. The fibres are incredibly absorbent, and this can cause the fabric conditioner to leave residue – which might make your hoodie blanket feel crusty after a while. A definite no-no!
If you want to ensure that your Snuggy stays super-sized and super-cosy, keeping it away from heat is a must. This means washing at low temperatures, tumble drying on cool and not storing it near a heat source!
Wash with similar materials
For best results, wash your hoodie blanket on its own or with similar materials. It’s especially important that you take care to avoid washing it with items that contain zips or Velcro. Doing so will help to minimise snagging and preserve the structural integrity of the fabric.
When not in use, store your Snuggy in a cool, dry place that’s away from direct sunlight. This will prevent damage and discolouration, ensuring your Snuggy stays as visually appealing as the day you got it.
Avoid overloading the pocket
Our hoodie blankets come with a big pocket on the front to carry around your phone, snacks, the remote – whatever accessories make life more convenient. But be careful not to overload the pocket with heavy items, as too much weight could lead to unintended tearing.
The Snuggy shop
The Snuggy experience doesn’t end with our hooded blankets. You can also inject some cosiness into your life with lounge sets, weighted blankets and a range of cosy accessories – including fluffy slipper socks and hot water bottles.
All of our products are crafted with the same dedication to quality and comfort that our hoodie blankets exemplify. Together, they provide the ultimate cosy experience.
