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.
Construction of a duvet. The external material used in most duvets is cotton as it is both economical and comfortable. However. you do have options of silk or cotton-silk blend duvets too. The thread count for duvets is almost always high as the filling may tend to seep out otherwise. It is also a good idea to invest in a duvet cover as it makes maintenance much easier. A duvet cover protects against spills and general wear and tear. If you are looking to go in for a change of colours and hues around the room. it`s much more cost effective to replace a duvet cover than a duvet itself.
What is a Duvet Comforter Cover? Duvets originated in Europe. and were made from down feathers of the eider duck. which is known for its usefulness as an insulator and is called eider down. So what exactly is a duvet? A duvet is essentially a bag filled with feathers. that you use as a blanket. So. you may be wondering. what exactly is the difference between a duvet and a comforter? Well. a comforter is to be used in conjunction with other bedding. The traditional use for a comforter is you make your bed with a bottom sheet. a top sheet. one or more blankets. and then the comforter on top. A duvet however is usually used all by itself. When using a duvet. the common practice is that you do not use sheets or blankets. you use only a duvet.
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.
If you are asthmatic or allergy-prone another option you could go for is silk duvet covers. Silk is a natural fibre and soothes the user into a blissful sleep. Though it could cost a little more than the regular cover. it gives an incomparable lavish look to your duvet. It is a good investment considering the anti-allergen effect it gives while also serving all seasons by staying warm in the winters and cool in the summers.
