How should I wash a duvet?


Answer by  olive49 (424)

For very large duvets, they should be taken to a dry cleaner. If this is not an option, use one of the extra-large washers and dryers at the laundromat.

Remove duvet from comoforter, turn it inside out to wash and back to dry. Read duvet's tag to see if it needs dry cleaned instead. Wash separately on warm. Be ecology minded and hang until almost dry, then finish in dryer adding a fabric softener sheet. Place over comforter.

You should read the label and see what they recommend. But normally just take it and put it in the washer on delicate and dry on delicate as well.

When washing any item, it is best to read the manufacturer's suggestions on the attached label. Most duvets are made of either feathers or down. These types of duvets are best dry cleaned. While it may cost a lot to have a duvet dry cleaned, it will extend the life of the duvet for many years.

You can wash a duvet cover in the washing machine. Put it on a gentle setting in the washer and dryer. Also, if it has buttons or a zipper, you might want to zip it up.

Most duvets can be machine washed with warm water and double rinsing. You must be sure that the machine is large enough to comfortably hold and agitate the duvet.

To wash a duvet you really need a large drum capacity. a minimum of 7kg drum capacity is required for a king size duvet.If using biological detergent and washing in bath,soak it for few hours. If washing a white duvet, use normal deterget containing bleaching agents - not liquid or "colour-friendly" detergents and use hot water

A duvet cover can usually be washed the same as you wash sheets. The insert should usually be washed separately with cold water on a gentle cycle and then air-dried.

I would put the setting on gentle and wash with mild soap. Put it in the dryer to fluff it up and air dry the rest of the time.

Duvet covers can be placed in the washer just like other garments. However, they should be placed only with pillow cases because they can occupy the machine really quickly.
