Down duvets are lofty and warm. To keep them from dirt, spills and the oils in our skin, you can use pillowcase and duvet covers. Then, wash them once every season.
It is recommended to test the treatment in an inconspicuous area to make sure it doesn’t leave a ring.
- Pull the cover away from the filling.
- Dampen the area you want to treat.
- Rub in a small amount of detergent until it begins to foam.
- For extra potency, you can let it sit
- Simply rinse that section until the suds are completely gone if you’re not washing the entire duvet, and dry it completely.
Our all natural down and hypoallergenic down alternative filling are machine washable although you can take them to get professionally cleaned.
- Only place your duvet into an XL front-loading washing machine. The duvet will get tangled and damaged if the machine is too small.
- Add about a third the amount of detergent you’d usually use for a load that size to the machine.
- Wash on the delicate cycle.
- Use cool water.
- Use a detergent that is specifically made for down, or a mild, enzyme-free, all-natural variety.
- Run the rinse cycle twice to remove all the soap.
- Choose an industrial dryer, set on the lowest setting, and tumble-dry duvet.
- To help fluff and keep the down or down alternative filling separated, you can add a few wool dryer balls or clean tennis balls.
- After 20 to 30 minutes, take the duvet out of the dryer to check the temperature. It’s too warm if the duvet is hot to the touch.
- To break up clumps, you can remove the duvet every half hour and let it cool. Be patient for it takes a while. Sometimes, it may take up to five or six hours depending on the side of your duvet.
- Make sure to dry the filling completely before putting duvet back on your bed or in its cover to prevent it growing mold.
- Hold the duvet against a light and examine for clumps. Once the duvet is not yet dry, you will see clumps.
- Hang the duvet or lay it on a flat surface outside or in a well-ventilated room to allow it to finish drying.
- Place it back in its pillowcase or duvet cover once it is clean and dry.
A good down blanket can be used for one year-round because it is incredibly breathable. Store your down blanket in a cotton bag or roll it into a cotton sheet in summer. Before packing a freshly washed duvet, we had better wait for a couple weeks, even up to a month to ensure it is completely dry.
