How to Protect Your Blanket From a Pet


We love our blankets...but so do our pets. Whether your cat or dog likes to snuggle up with you in your favorite blanket or throw or whether they'd rather get their teeth and claws into it, here are a few tips on how to keep your textiles safe from your pet.


Store your blankets and throws

Keeping your blankets on the back of the couch or at the foot of the bed might keep certain pets away, but we know our feline and canine friends have a way of resting where they aren't supposed to. Much as we love them, we don't always love the smell or the fur they leave behind. To keep your blankets safe, store them in a closet or even in a decorative bin. That way, you can pull them out when you need them.


Keep your pets out

If you really want to keep your pets away from your blankets and throws - especially if they are the destructive type - keep them out of rooms (such as your bedroom) by closing the doors or putting up baby gates.


Wash your blankets regularly

As we mentioned, it's no secret that our furry friends are coupled with odor. If you can't keep them away 100% of the time, be sure to regularly wash your blankets and throws to keep them smelling fresh and clean. Many of the blankets and throws we have here at Brahms Mount are washer and dryer friendly! Pictured: Cotton/Linen Day Blanket By Brahms Mount
