Tips for Preparing Your Blankets
•Don’t be afraid to pre-rinse dirty blankets! Hang them over a gate or fence, and hose the mud off with cold water. Let it dry completely before bagging it up.
•On an index card, write your: name, phone number, and drop-off location address. Please also note which services you would like (waterproofing, return in zipper bags, etc.) or don’t want (i.e. don’t replace the missing leg straps). Put this index card inside a plastic sandwich bag and place it in the bag with your blankets.
•Empty feed sacks work great for holding dirty blankets!
