Washing a comforter can be a daunting task. If you don’t do it properly, your bedding will smell and could even become stained. This is why washing your comforter should not be taken lightly! In this blog post, I am going to provide you with an in-depth guide on how to wash your comforter safely and effectively.
How often should you wash a comforter?
There is no set answer to this question, but washing your comforter every six months should keep it in the best shape possible. The frequency of washing a comforter depends on how often you use it and where you live. For example, if your bedroom has a lot of dust or mites that can contribute to allergies then washing could become more frequent because those allergens will embed themselves into your bedding. If you are not sure when to wash, just go off what smells like! Clean-smelling bedding means it’s overdue for washing while an unpleasant odor might mean it’s the time!
How to wash a comforter?
1. Fill your washing machine with the hottest water possible
2. Add in a few cups of white vinegar to help break down oils and dirt
3. Place your comforter inside the washer, and then add a cup or two of baking soda for extra freshness
4. Let it run on the “heavy-duty” setting for at least an hour – this will ensure that all stains are removed from deep within the fabric
5. When you’re done, remove it from the washer and put it in the dryer set on low heat – make sure to use liquid detergent instead of powder so that you don’t get any residue left behind!
6. Repeat steps 1-5 until all stains have come out completely (can take up to 10 cycles)
How to clean a duvet?
A duvet is a type of bedding that is filled with down or feathers. It’s usually used during the winter and often times will come in a cover so it can be washed regularly without washing the whole comforter as well. The process for washing this item depends on what kind you have, but most brands recommend washing by hand to maintain its shape and quality. Here are some tips:
1. Take the duvet outside and shake it to remove any loose dirt or dust
2. Put a washing machine load of down-safe detergent in with your duvet, then run a full cycle on the heavy-duty setting
3. Remove the duvet from the washer when finished, shaking it one more time before removing excess water by laying it out flat on a large surface
4. Lay your dryer’s lint trap over an empty bucket, then lay your wet down comforter inside of this contraption; close up the top and turn on high heat for 15 minutes
5. When done, open up both sides of the lint trap to release any trapped feathers that may have been lost during the drying process – now you’re ready to enjoy a clean bed!
How to clean a silk-filled duvet?
Over the years, bedding has changed from cotton sheets to silk-filled duvets. These items are so expensive that you want them to last as long as possible and keep their luxurious feel. However, this type of material can not be washed in a washing machine or dryer because it will destroy its fibers. You need to spot clean any dirty spots with bleach and water but do not use too much pressure on these delicate areas while cleaning them off. Dry cleaning is also an option if there is no stain just dust or dirt build up on your silk pillowcases and other pieces of fabric like curtains for example. Silk fabrics should never go into a clothes washer!
Always follow the care instructions of your comforter or duvet. In this way, you can enjoy your perfect 8 hours of sleep every day.
