So for the first time on campus, I washed my blankets. It did not turn out as expected though as I think I used too much liquid detergent. I washed with a normal cycle (there was an option to set it to delicate) using cold water and dried using medium heat. The fibers were coarse and my skin started itching (I don't know if this was just in my head though). After classes, I went through both cycles again without any detergent or softener with the same settings. They feel better, I'm not as itchy, but it's still coarse. I heard using white vinegar would resolve this but that'd be kind of hard with a front load washer and to find on campus. I do have liquid softener though if that helps. I'm scared to wash it again without knowing the remedy because of waste of time, money, and one of my blankets have started shrinking bit by bit to where it almost won't cover my bed (I'm not sure if it will unshrink). I just want my blankets back to normal..
