For over 30 years, the down bedding experts at DOWNLITE have been helping the entire nation get a good night’s rest. But even if you buy the latest and greatest in bedding, without the proper care, it’s not going to do much good for very long. Luckily, the professionals at DOWNLITE offer a few care tips to help you keep your comforter clean and cozy.
Before you toss your comforter straight onto your bed, put a cover on it. If you have a down comforter, a cover can prevent the breakdown of the fabrics due to oils. Besides serving as a protective layer for your costly comforter, it’s much more affordable to change the cover should your styles and tastes change.
When you use a cover, you won’t have to wash your comforter as often. Covers should be washed weekly but can often just be tossed in with a regular load of laundry, unlike the comforter that usually needs to be taken to a laundromat. If you do have to wash your comforter, follow the instructions on the label or take it to a professional cleaner.
After carefully washing your comforter, you must also be mindful of how you dry it. While most comforters can simply be machine-dried, it never hurts to check the label. Thoroughly dry your comforter, however, to avoid any mold or mildew. If you just need to give your comforter a fresh smell, hang it on the clothesline on a dry, breezy day.
