To Wash A Duvet Inner, Follow These Tips:
Washing a duvet or a quilt can be quite daunting, perhaps these tips on how to wash a duvet inner will be useful.
- Check the care label for washing instructions and follow them carefully. Many manufacturers recommend taking the item to a professional dry cleaner, but it is possible to wash a duvet at home if you have a large enough washing machine.
- Avoid using a washing machine that is too small, as the wet duvet inner will become heavy and could damage the drum.
- Natural fibers should be washed with extreme care, and a dry cleaner is usually recommended. Make sure to dry the duvet thoroughly, as the filling can hold on to moisture and spoil.
- Synthetic fibers can be washed at the temperature specified on the care label. Make sure the duvet fits in your washing machine with room to move around during the cycle.
- If the duvet is too large for your washing machine, take it to a laundromat. Dry the duvet as quickly as possible in a dryer (only if recommended) or outside on a hot, sunny day.
- Avoid using harsh chemicals on your duvet, as they can damage the fabric fibers and down. Use a mild detergent, preferably one used on delicate fabrics.
- If you want to hand wash your duvet, carefully read the care label and follow the instructions. Start washing the duvet as early as possible to maximize your drying time.
- Fill your bath halfway with tepid water and add your detergent. Activate the detergent by moving your hands in the water, and then submerge the duvet.
- Scrub the duvet gently to remove any dirt or stains, making sure not to damage the down. Rinse the duvet thoroughly to remove all soap residue.
- Squeeze out the excess water by rolling the duvet as tightly as possible without wringing it. Do this repeatedly to avoid wrinkling the fabric.
- Hang the duvet outside in the sun and shake it out every half hour to redistribute the down. This will help it dry quickly and evenly.
