Silk is not only can not be washed, but also can not be dry cleaned, in the dirty place with water slightly wipe, wipe off the dirty place can be. For the wool quilt, it can not be washed, can not be ironed, although it can be dry cleaned, but can not let the sun excessive exposure, so wool quilt is actually a very troublesome material.

Sun killed mites

When the sun is right, there are always many people drying the quilt, and they will use some tools, such as clothes or sticks to beat, in fact, if the quilt is not dried for three months, it will breed more than 1 million mites. People who know about mites know that it is a kind of invisible microbial pests that are easy to infect some skin diseases. And it is also easy to be infected with some more sensitive diseases and respiratory diseases. It likes to grow in such a warm and humid environment, and quilts are in line with its growth environment.

If you want to eliminate these mites, you need to have a good ventilation and very effective exposure to the sun. However, when the weather is cloudy and cold, it is not suitable for drying quilts, we can use the electric heating and electric short blanket at home to dry it, so that mites can no longer survive. Note that when drying, we must turn the quilt more and more, and we can not let it be in a fixed position to dry, otherwise it is easy to catch fire.
