The value of the comforter. along with the fact that it is difficult to clean. lead to the "invention" of the duvet cover. Similar to the concept of a pillowcase. the duvet cover protected the down or silk comforter from body oils and all the other elements that might soil it.
Finding the perfect size. Also commonly known as a down comforter. duvets come in a range of sizes. If you share your duvet with your spouse or partner. you might want to pay close attention to the size while buying to avoid a midnight tug of war. Duvets come in single. double. king and superking sizes like your beds and mattresses. A good rule of thumb is to get a size larger than the size of your bed. If you use a bed skirt and don`t want your comforter to spill around the sides of the bed. you will have to opt for a smaller sized comforter.
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.
It`s worth noting that it takes special measures beyond a simple run through the washer to kill off dust mites. Dust mites have been shown to be more effectively killed off if certain essential oils are used in the washing process such as pine. eucalyptus. or peppermint oil. These can kill a large majority of the dust mites in the duvet and will also leave a refreshing scent. Unfortunately just killing dust mites is note quite enough. Most allergies to dust mites are to their waste products and their bodies (dead or live) and so it might be effective to shake out or even beat your duvet with a broom as it`s suspended from a line. After this you will need to redistribute the filling material so that it is evenly placed. If you start out with a dust mite proof duvet cover you will not have to take such extreme cleaning measures of your duvet. you can simply focus your cleaning on the duvet cover on a regular basis and still avoid allergies related to dust mites in a dirty duvet.
