DOWNLITE Explains How to Wash Your Down Bedding, Mason, Ohio

When it comes to down bedding, proper cleaning and upkeep go a long way in ensuring its longevity. That’s why the experts at DOWNLITE emphasize following the right cleaning techniques to keep your down comforters and pillows in top shape. Providing the best down products to their online customers, they are here to guide you through the process involved in down bedding cleaning.

Before you begin cleaning your down items, DOWNLITE advises to check them thoroughly for any open seams or holes that would let down out. If you do manage to find some, be sure to repair them before placing down bedding in the washer. Keep an eye out for tough stains, and make sure you use spot-treating products on them before the actual cleaning starts.

Down BeddingOnce the initial steps are taken care of, you can proceed to put your bedding items in the washing machine. Considering the large size of a down comforter, it’s best to dedicate an entire cycle to wash it in a front-loading washer. With down’s delicate nature in mind, don’t forget to pick a mild detergent and put your washer cycle on gentle with lukewarm water.
