Cleaning a Duvet and Duvet Cover to Combat Dust Mite Allergies. Duvet Covers have become a popular choice for bedding around the world. Originally it was a type of bedding found in continental Europe or Scandinavia. The Duvet draws its name from the French word for down and that is the material that the quilt that a duvet covers is used with contains. The duvet (or quilt) can contain feathers. silk. wool. cotton. polyester batting or other artificial fibers. This duvet is then used with a duvet cover to keep it clean. or to coordinate it with the decor of a room. The duvet may be confused with a quilt. but the distinction is typically that a quilt is used on top of other bedding. a duvet is used as the sole bedcovering.
Bedding however can be a great living and hiding place for all sorts of dust and dirt and duvets are no different. Dust mites can thrive in the duvet and it`s important that it be cleaned regularly. If you are allergic to dust and dust mites it would be especially important to find a duvet cover that is resistant to dust mites passing through the material. Cleaning the duvet seems as though it could be a challenging process. A large commercial washing machine is recommended for a duvet to be cleaned. You should not have a duvet dry cleaned as the chemicals may damage the filler material. If you choose to dry your duvet in the dryer you should stop it periodically and break up any lumps of damp filler material that have clumped together. You should also use low heat to dry your duvet.
Finding the perfect size. Also commonly known as a down comforter. duvets come in a range of sizes. If you share your duvet with your spouse or partner. you might want to pay close attention to the size while buying to avoid a midnight tug of war. Duvets come in single. double. king and superking sizes like your beds and mattresses. A good rule of thumb is to get a size larger than the size of your bed. If you use a bed skirt and don`t want your comforter to spill around the sides of the bed. you will have to opt for a smaller sized comforter.
