Natural Duvets: How to Buy Them Then Care for Them. Natural duvets are basically quilts that usually come with a washable cover. In general they may be used as an alternative of a bedspread and top sheet. If you haven`t bought one for yourself yet. then this guide will help you own one then care for it.
Cleaning a Duvet and Duvet Cover to Combat Dust Mite Allergies. Duvet Covers have become a popular choice for bedding around the world. Originally it was a type of bedding found in continental Europe or Scandinavia. The Duvet draws its name from the French word for down and that is the material that the quilt that a duvet covers is used with contains. The duvet (or quilt) can contain feathers. silk. wool. cotton. polyester batting or other artificial fibers. This duvet is then used with a duvet cover to keep it clean. or to coordinate it with the decor of a room. The duvet may be confused with a quilt. but the distinction is typically that a quilt is used on top of other bedding. a duvet is used as the sole bedcovering.
Duvet inserts and covers present less of a storage problem than other types of bed covers. In general two inserts are adequate for any bed. One for the colder months and one for the warmer months. with an empty duvet cover (no insert) being used during the hottest months. So. for most of the year when one duvet insert is in use. you have one bulky (but not as bulky as many other coverings) duvet inserts to store. Add to this all but one of your duvet covers - three in the closet. along with one on the bed would give you four to alternate between. Each of the covers takes up as much space as two folded flat sheets. This compares favorably with the storage space required for a total of four changes with other types of bed covers. such as three bedspreads. quilts or decorative comforters.
So what about when you are using a duvet? Well. that is where duvet covers come in. Essentially. a duvet cover would take the place of a set of sheets. because the duvet cover can be taken off the and washed as you would a set of sheets. It certainly seems that this would simplify the bed making process. since you would be replacing your top sheet. blanket and comforter with a simple duvet. You need only throw the duvet over the bottom sheet and you are done. Or. if you go the old fashioned way. you would have a duvet on the bottom and a duvet on the top. kind of like a sleeping bag with no zippers.
