Note to self....check the tags on our blankets for machine washability before you wash them.
2nd Note to self (and to Bacho :)....when we're lying in bed and we say to each other, "Mmm, it smells like something's burning. It must be the heater coming on," get up and check to see if our maroon blanket is about to burn down the house from all of it's tiny lint balls clogging up the dryer.
P.S. If you're coming to my house to visit, expect to see lots of tiny, maroon lint balls. They're everywhere!
