Own A Down Comforter? Here’s How You Should Be Cleaning It

You might clean your bed sheets regularly and remove stains from the bed as soon as you see them but when was the last time you washed the comforter?

Comforters can trap allergens like dust mites and lead to itching, sneezing, and all those watery-eyed, drooping-nose symptoms. This is why it is important that you keep your comforter clean. Take a look at some ways you can do so:

Don’t Ignore the Label

Think you can just throw in your comforter in the washing machine along with the rest of your laundry? Maybe you should read the label before you do so.

Manufacturers provide all cleaning instructions on the care labels of their products. Your comforter might be made of wool or silk. These materials shrink after they are washed.

There are additional instructions that you need to follow for example should the comforter be washed be cold or hot water. Can you wash it in the washing machine or is it better to wash it by hand.

Detergents

Always go for a natural or mild detergent and make sure that you follow the instructions provided on the bottle. Check the label for ideal temperature settings.

Want to make sure that the color and fabric stays safe? Use warm or cold water. Hot water, on the other hand, is effective for killing dust mites.

Look Out For Stains and Tears

Need to remove that stain from the comforter? Before you toss it in the washing machine, make sure you use a mixture of water and baking soda to spot treat the stain. Also, make sure that you check the cloth for any kind of loose threads.

Fluffing

The comforter’s filling needs to be distributed evenly. You can ensure that by removing it from the dryer after every half an hour and fluffing it.

Use tennis balls and fluffer rings while drying the comforter, in order to even out the filling.  Just make sure you are drying the comforter at a temperature suggested on the label.

Use the Right Machine

Comforters can occupy quite a lot of space in the washing machine. Therefore, it is best that you wash them in the large-sized machine. In a small machine, the fluffing can compress. It will adversely affect the comforter’s filling.
