Even with a good duvet cover it would be wise to regularly wash your duvet. however it should not be necessary to go to such extreme measures to remove dust mites from the duvet if you have an effective duvet cover. One advantage to the duvet cover is if they are allergen proof you should be able to just change out the duvet cover for washing on a frequent basis and then on a less frequent schedule clean your duvet. Another advantage to this routine is that you will be able to change out the look and feel of your bedroom on a regular basis as well if you have duvet covers with various designs.
On a lighter note. in the 1990s in the UK. it became fashionable to take a "duvet day." This is kind of like a freebie day for work. If you are allowed one or more duvet days at your job. it means that you can call in as many duvet days as you have and take the day off for no defined reason. These can be taken even if you do not have vacation on the books or even if you are not ill. I always called them "mental health" days. but whatever you call them we need more of them in the States.
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.
Also. with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned. leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves. not necessarily requiring a duvet cover. One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts. so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
