Calculate everything correctly. For example, in the washing machine with a load of 4.5-5 kg is possible to wash as a thin synthetic blanket (regardless of size) and a half or double woolen blanket. If the product is thin and small, it can be folded as you like before washing. Large blankets it is recommended to twist a dense snail or neatly folded and then loaded into the drum.
