Can a quilt go in the dryer?
Keeping this in consideration, can I put my quilt in the dryer?
If you have a newer quilt with strong stitches you can more than likely put it in the dryer on low, however, if you are treating a vintage or antique quilt, its best to lay it flat or hang it over a clothesline or tub to dry.
Also, how do you dry a quilt comforter? Drape a wet comforter or quilt over several clotheslines to allow excess moisture to drip out; reposition it periodically. If the comforter or quilt is strong enough to be dried in a clothes dryer, use a low temperature setting and include a pair of clean, dry tennis shoes to help fluff the down.
In respect to this, how long does it take to dry a quilt?
Throw in a few clean tennis balls or clean shoes to help fluff it and prevent clumping. This may take three hours or more to dry completely. Make sure your comforter is completely dry before using or storing—mildew can grow inside damp down and ruin it.
How do you soften a quilt?
Add 1/2 cup of distilled white vinegar to the water to help remove detergent residue, brighten colors, and soften the fabric. Repeat the rinsing process until the water and quilt are soap-free.
