When caring for a natural duvet. it`s suggested that you get the duvet dry cleaned. Although there are duvets that recommend being washed in washing machines. it`s best to dry clean the duvet if it`s made of natural fibres. Natural fibres include cotton. goose down or goose fluff. fur. and duck feathers. The filling in a duvet can become hard and rough if it`s not correctly cleaned.
What is a Duvet Comforter Cover? Duvets originated in Europe. and were made from down feathers of the eider duck. which is known for its usefulness as an insulator and is called eider down. So what exactly is a duvet? A duvet is essentially a bag filled with feathers. that you use as a blanket. So. you may be wondering. what exactly is the difference between a duvet and a comforter? Well. a comforter is to be used in conjunction with other bedding. The traditional use for a comforter is you make your bed with a bottom sheet. a top sheet. one or more blankets. and then the comforter on top. A duvet however is usually used all by itself. When using a duvet. the common practice is that you do not use sheets or blankets. you use only a duvet.
Duvets are mostly filled with down. cotton. feathers or alternative fills that include synthetic fabrics. silk or wool. While duck down and goose down duvets are seen as rather luxurious. synthetic duvets have been catching up and nowadays can give duck down or goose down a run for their money. Also. if you or your children are prone to allergies. you should opt for duvets that are filled with hypodown or other such anti allergic filling.
If you must wash it in a machine. do not under expose it to dryer any circumstances. A dryer can cause a fire hazard due to the duvet`s huge size. The duvet can also burn and start a fire. The only type of duvets that can be cleaned in a washing machine is one filled with synthetic fibre. Dry cleaning something made of synthetic fibre is not necessary.
