Your bed should be a place where you can relax and find physical comfort. If you’ve invested in some nice down bedding such as comforters or pillows, you’ll want to make sure you take proper care of them so that they last and continue to provide you with the highest level of comfort. DOWNLITE, a family owned and operated bedding company, has a few tips on how to care for down bedding.
While down bedding may require a little extra care, these tips from DOWNLITE are bound to be worth it:
- Keep It Protected: The best way to keep your down bedding in good condition is to keep it protected. Consider using pillow protectors, mattress protectors, and duvets to keep all of your down bedding clean and free from any dust mites.
- Don’t Over Wash: Washing your down bedding too often can actually break down the natural oils. To cut down on the wear and tear from the washing machine, spot-clean the actual down bedding and wash it just once a year. If you’re using protectors, however, they can be washed as frequently as you want!
- Use The Correct Soap: Whether spot-cleaning or tossing in the washing machine, use a safe, citrus-based cleaner. Avoid using regular detergents; use a specified down-washing product such as Downe or a mild detergent like Dawn dishwashing liquid.
- Fluff Daily: Fluffing your down bedding and down pillows daily will also keep them in good condition. This little tip will keep your down bedding nice and even and will keep the actual down consistent throughout.
