Unroll the towel and place blanket flat on the second towel, Leave to air dry flat, or smooth the blanket out flat on a drying rack to avoid any wrinkles.
When dry, the blanket can be pressed with a cool iron. To store, fold in tissue paper to absorb any excess moisture and leave it silky soft and ready to be used.
