We were contact by a concerned Snuggie user who was unsure how to wash and dry their Snuggie.
Good news – it is easier than you think. Here are our top tips for washing and drying your Snuggie (or Slanket).
If you need to wash your Snuggie, then it can be done in a regular washing machine. Just make sure you put it on a cold or delicate cycle. You may also want to turn it inside out in order to protect the material from ‘piling’ on the side that is usually exposed. As long as it is on a cold wash, then your Snuggie should be fine.
Tip: wash your Snuggie on its own (or at least with other items that are a similar texture and material) – it is abrasion that causes the most damage to your Snuggie and will cause piling of the blanket. Its best not to have anything else in the machine for it to rub against during the wash if possible.
To dry it, you have a couple of options – the best is to air dry it outside, preferably lying as flat as possible to stop it stretching or getting out of shape. But you can also put it in a dryer – as long as it is on a very low heat. Put it on a high heat and you can kiss goodbye to your beloved Snuggie. If you are drying your Snuggie in an electric dryer, always set it on short cycles so you can keep checking it – it is best to remove it as soon as it is dry to avoid it going round and round for too long.
Hope that helps.
