The simple way to keep blankets soft, fluffy, warm HE United States Government says:* “The warmth of a blanket depends very largely upon the amount of nap.” When a blanket shrinks and mats in washing—loses its fluffy nap —it won't keep you, as warm. So, wash your blankets the Lux way. Lux won’t shrink or mat or fade them. 1. Make very rich, lukewarm Lux suds. 2. Gently press tho Lux suds through and through the blanket. Never rub. 3. Rinse thoroughly in water the same temperature as the suds. Dry in the shade—never near heat. This simple washing method will keep your blankets lovely and new-looking — soft and w arm.
