Tog rating. Pay attention to the tog rating of a comforter. The required tog rating may differ based on your comfort and the weather. A comforter with a 4.5 rating can keep you cool in summer. The more popular ones that work well for spring. autumn and sometimes even for all year use are the ones with the 9.0 and 10.5 tog rating. Duvets with a 13.5 tog rating are great for cold winters. You also have the option of combining two duvets together during winters - the duvets with the 4.5 rating and the ones with the 9.0 rating.
Even with a good duvet cover it would be wise to regularly wash your duvet. however it should not be necessary to go to such extreme measures to remove dust mites from the duvet if you have an effective duvet cover. One advantage to the duvet cover is if they are allergen proof you should be able to just change out the duvet cover for washing on a frequent basis and then on a less frequent schedule clean your duvet. Another advantage to this routine is that you will be able to change out the look and feel of your bedroom on a regular basis as well if you have duvet covers with various designs.
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.
