What setting do you wash a blanket?

For best results, wash your cotton blanket separately in cold water on the gentle cycle with your usual detergent. If you need extra cleaning power, you can use non-chlorine bleach. These natural fiber blankets are perfectly safe to put in the dryer on the “no heat” or “low heat” setting.

Also asked, can you tumble dry a bed sheet?

Bedding might take a little longer to dry than a regular load of clothes, but leaving sheets in the dryer longer "just in case" is what can cause them to shrink. "Its best to tumble dry sheets on low heat for the shortest time possible (and yes, this could take some trial and error to get right).

What setting to dry clothes on?

Choose the right setting, or cycle, for your clothes:
  • Cotton: High heat for towels, jeans, sweats, and other heavy fabrics.
  • Permanent press: Medium heat for synthetic fabrics.
  • Gentle: Low heat for delicate items like lingerie and workout clothes.
  • Air dry: No heat — great for fluffing pillows or refreshing clothes.
