clean-down-comforterIt’s that time of year when comforters, coats and blankets may need a wash before use. Many puffy outerwear coats are totally able to go into the washer and dryer, even if they are goose down.

Often the collar and cuffs have become dirty. I’ve used Wisk for collars and cuffs for years. I’m also now using OxiClean and Resolve, so pick your favourite and give a little scrub time to these noticeable spots before putting them into the washing machine. I use cold water and I make sure that I’m on a delicate cycle. I don’t advise using a fabric softener on goose down as it tends to matt the feathers. Tumble dry on low for and then give the down a good shake.

Otherwise you can put a couple of tennis balls in the dryer with the coat. The newer synthetic blankets clean up easily in the washing machine. If you have a few of them why not bring them to Mapleview Laundromat and use one big washer to do them all at once? Please see previous blogs for comforter washing/drying instructions.

Lending Library

The lending library works on the “Honour” system. So do the books. If people have books or magazines they no longer want they can bring them in for the library. If people find a good book they can take it home to read. We would just appreciate it if they would return the book when they are finished. We take reading material that is not religious, and not smutty in any way. Children may look through the books and see something they shouldn’t see. The library is near to the front on the left wall beside the soap vending machine.
