How to Care for your Duvets

It is important to take proper care of your duvets in order to prolong their life and keep them looking good. A duvet does not need to be washed often as the duvet cover keeps it covered and clean. If you spill on your duvet then rather spot wash that area with a bucket of warm soapy water. If you feel like your duvet needs a complete wash then follow these instructions.

All Down and Down & Feather Fills:

Warm WashCool Tumble DryDo Not IronDo Not BleachDo Not Dry Clean
  • Warm Gentle Machine Wash - 40°
  • Cool Tumble Dry
  • Do Not Iron
  • Do Not Bleach
  • Do Not Dry Clean

WASHING INSTRUCTIONS
Your duvets and pillows can be hand or machine washed. Place the duvet into a large machine with a small amount of mild liquid washing detergent and wash on a warm, gentle cycle so as not to stress the seams. Take care not to use any bleach or brightner as this strips the fabric of its protective downproof layer. Do not use any fabric softner as this coats the down and prevents it from drying properly. Make sure that the duvet is rinsed thoroughly, this should take 2-3 rinses. The duvet can be dried in a tumble-dryer on a low heat, take it out of the dryer and shake a few times during the cycle. Use dryer balls (or clean tennis balls in a pillow case) to help beat the duvet as it dries, this prevents lumps forming. Make sure the duvet is completely dry before you put it back on your bed. Hang the duvet in the shade to air. Direct sunlight tends to make the down sweat which releases an odour. A small amount of shrinkage may occur as the cover is 100% cotton downproof.

A FEW EXTRA POINTERS
Always use a cover to protect the duvet from perspiration, soiling and wear, the duvet itself should only need to be cleaned every four to five years. Regular fluffing will help the duvet last longer and provide better insulation. A few vigorous shakes each morning is sufficient to redistribute the fill and avoid matting. Use the cotton tog bag that is supplied with the duvet for storing or transporting your duvet. This bag is cotton and allows the duvet to breath. NEVER use plastic to store you duvet.
