How often should you wash your blankets?

Posted by Cyndi, The Founder on

Wad-Free inventor Cyndi Bray in a blue dress holds packaging of Wad-Free for Bed Sheets and  Wad-Free for Blankets and Duvet Covers. The packaging is blue and orchid. One white square is seen in the open clothes dryer attached to a blue sheet and one white round Wad-Free is shown attached to a purple blanket in the open clothes dryer


If you are like most people, you wash your bed sheets every week or two, but seldom do you launder your blankets and duvet covers. Many people think that since the top sheet provides a layer between their body and the blanket/duvet cover, that they can slack on frequent washing, but that might be a mistake.

Imagine you didn’t dust your dresser for a period of time, say a month. A film of dust — which is often comprised of allergens —would form on the surface. While you might not be able to see it, dust collects on the top-most layer of your bed in the same way. Some of that dust gets shuffled around every time you toss the covers around, ultimately ending up in the air, your hair, and your skin. 

And if your pets are accustom to lounging in bed with you, they leave behind their fur, dander, and every day dirt from their paws.

To keep your bedding, and your bedroom clean, blankets and duvet covers should be washed every 2-4 weeks, or even more often if you have allergies and/or pets. 

While washing blankets frequently may sound like an arduous task, try the new laundry gadget Wad-Free® for Blankets & Duvet Covers to ease the task. This ingenious product attaches to large bedding with up to eight points, reducing the tangling, twisting, and balling-up of blankets and duvet covers, so they come out cleaner and dry faster than ever before.

Reusable and made in USA, Wad-Free® for Blankets & Duvet Covers is available at

Also try the original Wad-Free® for Bed Sheets on your sheets!

Both products are available for a special price with the Wad-Free® Combo Pack, only available direct from the Inventor at
