How to Wash a Duvet or Duvet?

When you have soft, comfortable bedding, like a comforter or duvet, you always want to keep it clean and in the best condition possible. However, did you know that caring for and washing your comforter or duvet is very different from washing regular sheets and blankets? If you want your products to maintain their original colors and last longer, follow these washing recommendations! Find out below how to wash a comforter or duvet.

Wash the comforter alone and the pieces separately

Wash the comforter alone and the pieces separately

If your duvet or duvet includes decorative covers and cushions, we recommend that you wash the duvet separately and the covers and cushions separately, so as not to overload your washing machine and so that the duvet has more space when carrying out all the washing cycles.

If your duvet has a cover, remove it and wash it separately. Do not wash the duvet with the cover on, since you only have to wash the cover and not the entire filling. The duvets in the Intima Hogar catalog always include a white comforter that can be removed to wash the cover separately.

Separate light colors from dark colors

Separating the bedding to be washed is a very important point during washing. Separating light colors from dark colors prevents light clothing from getting stained by dark colors, especially if the bedding is new, and keeps your clothes in their best shape for as long as possible.

Do not overload the washing machine

The product must be able to move freely. Otherwise, rinsing and washing will not be efficient.

Wash the product with cold water on a delicate cycle.

Due to the delicate fabric of your comforter or duvet, washing on a gentle or delicate cycle is essential. And the normal cycle or quick wash, intended for more resistant fabrics, can unravel or even tear your bedding. On the other hand, delicate garments require the use of cold water to avoid discoloration.

Don't use chlorine

Avoid using chlorine! The comforter may end up with a discolored area and, over time, may even break due to deterioration resulting from the use of this chemical compound.

Do not use strong soap or bleach

Strong detergents can destroy fibers in fabrics and filling. Instead, use a natural detergent or a mild commercial detergent designed for delicate fibers. Also do not use bleach, this can discolor your products.

Use liquid soap

Liquid soap mixes completely with the washing water because it is already a liquid. While soap powder could adhere to the fabric of the product, making a second rinse necessary.

Liquid detergent

Use a moderate amount of soap

No matter what type of detergent you choose, always make sure not to use too much. Too much detergent can be just as harmful as using harsh soap.

Dry the product in the dryer at medium temperature

Once your comforter or duvet is thoroughly washed, you will need to begin the drying process. To protect your product, dry it on a gentle cycle and at medium heat to allow it to dry longer.

Clothes line

Hang the duvet on the clothesline

Once the drying cycle is complete, hang your product outdoors to finish drying. And, even if your duvet feels dry to the touch, it is likely that there will still be moisture in the filling.

Hanging bedding outdoors will allow any remaining moisture to evaporate, preventing musty odors and mold growth.
