You could sprinkle it with baking soda while it is laying in the sun. Then you can just shake the soda out. I did this on musty smelling car mats and it worked great. I had previously tried just airing them but they didn't get nearly as fresh as they did w/ the baking soda.
Just my $.02!

Thanks Holly!

I'll try that. But, if I see any stains, I'll have to dry clean it. I don't want to donate a dirty blanket.

I'm not knitting on this blanket, but I just have to say it looks beautiful! You guys are doing a great job. The person who gets this blanket is going to be very lucky!

Dry clean it? Why don't you toss it in the washer and dryer? OB1 is acrylic..

I doubt that it would fit in my washer and dryer... then again maybe mine is small because I live in a dorm.

I was referring to the wool blanket #3.

We were discussing how I was going to get all the blankets clean. I'll be washing all the others, but the wool one is going to be the most work.

I have a big washer so it would probably fit, but it's a big afghan.

Ahh..I thought you were talking about OB1 since it was in this thread. Sorry 'bout that.
