When you put blankets on your bed for the cold weather

I am going to put a blanket on my bed for tonight. The blanket has been in my closet since late spring. So I decided to run it throught the dryer. What do you do? Should I actually put the blanket through the wash?

I always do, but I have cats that like to hide in closests and we recently have been fighting a flea infestation so everything is being washed no matter what. But just running it through the dryer should be fine.

I wash all the stuff before it goes on our bed.

If it was clean when you stored it and was in a bag then there's no need to wash it.

We haven't broken out the blankets yet.  Sleeping between SO and a large dog I may be able to go without one until January!

The blanket was clean when I put it away, but it wasn't in plastic, just on a top shelf. Maybe I'd better wash it.

 I just put it straight on the bed.

OK, it is in the wash. :)  I found a summer afghan that I put with it and replaced the afghan on the sofa with a winter afghan.

Oh well.  I couldn't make up my mind. so I guess when in doubt go ahead and wash it. :)
