How do I care for my feather pillows & duvet?

Posted by Leslie to Lori Schuett  ::  Views (829)

 

A:

 With the cooler weather upon us, it’s time to get out the feather beds and duvets. It’s important to take care of these items as they can be a pricy investment.

Here are a few tips that I can pass on.

• Purchase pillow protectors. This will help protect your pillows from every day use as well as discourage dust mites.

• Put your pillows in the dryer on medium heat once in a while.If you put two clean tennis balls in at the same time, this will help to fluff them.

• You can wash your pillows and duvets with mild detergent.  After laundering, make sure to squeeze out most of the water.   Put a towel in the dryer with your pillows and duvet to absorb excess water. Fluff when dry.

When dressing your bed it is important to let the duvet breathe. Give your duvet a good shake and let it sit for a bit before you finish making the bed.

Following these quick tips will help preserve your investment.
