How do you wash a Splash Blanket™?

We recommend washing your Splash Blanket™ on a similar setting to your towels or bed sheets washing cycle – one with a fast spin! It’s best to wash your Splash Blanket™ separately on a cold or warm temperature cycle (20 degrees celsius maximum) adding in one scoop of washing liquid or powder.

If you wash your blanket on a delicate or gentle wash, the spin cycle will not remove the water effectively so we recommend a fast-spin wash. If you find yourself with a stain such as blood, wine or another bodily fluid, use a stain remover spray and soak for 3 - 5 minutes before adding it in the wash. 

To dry your wet blanket you can either a) line-dry indoors or hang outside on the clothesline (colours may fade over time if in the sunshine for too long) or b) tumble dry on the lowest heat setting for 30 minutes. If your dryer is too hot, it could melt the inner TPU layer so please closely monitor which setting you use to dry your blanket for the first few washes so you can get to know the ideal length of time and setting to use for your size and style of blanket. If the inner layer melts in the dryer, Splash Blanket™ is not liable for any damage as every dryer has different heat settings and standards. NOTE: Using the dryer may keep your blanket fluffier and softer compared to drying on the clothesline. 

WARNING: Do not iron or dry clean and do not use fabric softener, bleach or vinegar on your blanket as it may compromise the integrity of the TPU layer. 

If you notice your blanket has a scent or a smell after washing, you may want to add a tablespoon of bicarb or wash on a longer and slightly warmer cycle with more washing detergent, and tumble dry. 

What is TPU and how is the blanket waterproof?

Our blankets are both plush and practical and can hold up to a litre of liquid (bodily fluids or otherwise). The material used to make the Splash Blanket™ has been internally bonded with a waterproof internal layer, which means the outer layers can get wet and not soak through to the other side. 

The waterproof layer is made of 100% recycled Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU), which makes both sides of the blanket waterproof and absorbent. The TPU is a non-toxic, BPA-free and a 100% food-grade safe material that does not contain any chemicals that interfere with the endocrine or hormone system.

How long does a Splash Blanket™ last?

Splash Blanket™ do not have an official lifespan as it is dependent on how the blanket is washed, dried and cared for, as well as how often it is used. However we estimate that the blanket will remain waterproof for about a year depending on how often you wash your blanket.

Unfortunately not all good things last forever, so you may notice your blanket becoming less waterproof after a year or so. General wear and tear is to be expected since the blanket will be regularly washed and dried due to accumulating liquids such as body fluids, oils & lubricants, which may make the blanket less effective over time.

The good news is, we still have blankets from the original batch in 2020 that are 100% effective! So, as long as you follow the washing instructions in the FAQ, they will last a long time!

What's the best way to dry my Splash Blanket™?

To dry your wet blanket you can either a) line-dry indoors or hang outside on the clothesline (colours may fade over time if in the sunshine for too long) or b) tumble dry on the lowest heat setting for 30 minutes. If your dryer is too hot, it could melt the inner TPU layer so please closely monitor which setting you use to dry your blanket for the first few washes so you can get to know the ideal length of time and setting to use for your size and style of blanket. If the inner layer melts in the dryer, Splash Blanket™ is not liable for any damage as every dryer has different heat settings and standards. NOTE: Using the dryer may keep your blanket fluffier and softer compared to drying on the clothesline. 

WARNING: Do not iron or dry clean and do not use fabric softener, bleach or vinegar on your blanket as it may compromise the integrity of the TPU layer. 

If you notice your blanket has a scent or a smell after washing, you may want to add a tablespoon of bicarb or wash on a longer and slightly warmer cycle with more washing detergent, and tumble dry. 

The larger blankets may take a while to dry on the clothes hanger especially if you live in a cooler climate and don't have access to a clothes line with direct sunshine. So we do highly recommend tumble drying the larger size blanket. It also keeps them nice and fluffy!

Can I use a Splash Blanket™ for my pets?

Our pets are naturally drawn to soft, plush, cosy blankets to curl up on and go to sleep, so you'll likely want an extra blanket for your four legged friends!

Being waterproof, they are an ideal blanket for capturing any urine leakages or incontinence, drool, dog-washing or post-beach trips in the car. A Splash Blanket™ is a wonderful accompaniment to help with those toilet training puppies or kitten accidents, as well as to support and nurture older animals who perhaps struggle with incontinence or want some extra coziness and support.

Help, my Splash Blanket™ is leaking. What do I do?

Unfortunately not all good things last forever and since Splash Blanket has a warranty of 12 months, we cannot replace your blanket after this period. If your blanket is leaking before this period, there could be multiple reasons why, such as a tear in the waterproof layer (hello cats claws or cheeky dog bites) or general wear & tear from washing or drying.

We recommend doing some spot checks with water to see if there is one particular area experiencing the leakage or the whole blanket.

We require an email or DM with video footage of the leak in order to replace. 

My Splash Blanket™ makes a “plasticy” sound after washing. Is this normal?

It is totally normal to hear some sound after washing your Splash Blanket™ as it contains a 100% recycled plastic Thermoplastic Polyurethane (TPU) waterproof layer, which is bonded to the fabric inside of the blanket. This is what keeps your couch, mattress or other surfaces protected from all forms of sex juices, oils, lubes, and bodily fluids. To make the blanket completely silent, we would have to remove the TPU layer, which defeats the purpose of the product entirely.

We are continually innovating our waterproof technology and this includes improving the functionality of our best-selling blankets. Since launching in 2020, we have created a double-layer TPU film to give you even more peace of mind when having sexy time, so you can fully relax and enjoy yourself! For this reason you might notice a plastic sound after washing your blanket. 

If you have sensory issues or are highly sensitive to sounds, you may prefer the Bamboo Splash Blanket™ as it is less audible than the OG Splash Blanket™.
