How To Wash a Duvet

Nothing compares to the comfort of jumping into bed with freshly changed bedding. But duvets can often be neglected in your home cleaning routine. It can be a daunting task, but the outcome is entirely worthwhile. This article will help you through a step-by-step process, making the job effortless! 

Ensure you read the label's care instructions before home-cleaning. Some duvets advise special care or professional cleaning to achieve the best results. Duvets don't need to be washed as frequently as your other bedding items, twice a year would suffice.  

1) Pre-Treating Stains & Spills  

To ensure you keep your bedding looking and feeling new, pre-treating stains before washing is essential. Inspect your duvet for any stains that could need a tad of attention.  

2) Put Bedding in the Washer 

Ensure you remove the duvet cover before putting the duvet into the machine. Spreading the bedding as much as possible within your machine will ensure effective and efficient cleaning.  

3) Add Laundry Detergent 

Use about half of an average load's recommended amount of soap and pour it into the machine's detergent dispenser. Avoid fabric softener and bleach as it could strip the duvet's fabric of its protective down-proof layer and prevent drying properly. 

4) Set Cycle & Start 

Set the machine dial to a warm, gentle cycle. If possible, include an extra rinse and spin cycle to remove any soap residue.
