Use White Vinegar to Fluff and Soften Your Wool Blankets

Casa Quickie: Fluff Your Wool

If you haven't already, now is definitely the time to trade in your stash of cotton throw blankets for the woolen ones that have been in storage for the past several months. There's nothing as cozy as curling up next to a fire in a soft woolen blanket — that is, unless your wool blankets fresh out of storage are flattened and stale-smelling. What to do? Soften up your woolens by adding two cups of white distilled vinegar to the rinse cycle of the wash. The vinegar will eliminate any stale odors (without adding a vinegar tang to it). Additionally, the elixir will fluff and soften those blankets. Is there anything white vinegar can't do?
