zztp. Duvets. July 15th , 2018.
In my household. it has always been a common practice to use a set of sheets. along with blankets and a comforter. One of the reasons that we do this is that the sheets are the only thing to come into contact with our bodies and so they are the only part of the bedding that becomes soiled and the sheets can be taken off on a regular basis and washed. Most commonly people do this on a weekly basis. but there are some who do this on a daily basis and others that stretch the timeline out even further than a week.
Also. with the passage of time comforters began to be made of materials that are more easily cleaned. leading to comforters that are decorative in themselves. not necessarily requiring a duvet cover. One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts. so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
From this practical and utilitarian beginning in a European peasant hut. the duvet cover has developed to include being the center of a modern bedroom decor. It still protects. but it has also become a fashion item that is easily changed and stored. The original comforters and covers were plain and drab. but eventually the cover`s decorative possibilities were realized.
Duvet Covers - Why They Keep Gaining in Popularity. Duvet covers have been around for a long time. but most Americans were not aware of them until relatively recently. Through the twentieth century their general acceptance and popularity has gone from obscure to a level where even many husbands know what they are. The development of the duvet will provide a little background to the advantages that duvet covers will bring to your decorating arsenal.
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.
