zztp. Duvets. July 10th , 2018.
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.
When caring for a natural duvet. it`s suggested that you get the duvet dry cleaned. Although there are duvets that recommend being washed in washing machines. it`s best to dry clean the duvet if it`s made of natural fibres. Natural fibres include cotton. goose down or goose fluff. fur. and duck feathers. The filling in a duvet can become hard and rough if it`s not correctly cleaned.
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 must wash it in a machine. do not under expose it to dryer any circumstances. A dryer can cause a fire hazard due to the duvet`s huge size. The duvet can also burn and start a fire. The only type of duvets that can be cleaned in a washing machine is one filled with synthetic fibre. Dry cleaning something made of synthetic fibre is not necessary.
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.
