Duvets and Quilts

 

Synthetic fillings:

Duvets or quilts with synthetic fillings can usually be washed, but some domestic washing machines do not have a large enough capacity to allow the duvet / quilt to move around freely in the drum.

  • If your article fits into your machine use a gentle cycle, with minimum agitation
  • You can use normal spin
  • After washing, make sure they are completely dried and aired before use

Feather and down fillings:

Check the care label of feather and down filled duvets / quilts as they may not be washable and may require dry-cleaning.

  • If they are washable, wash on a gentle cycle using a detergent without enzymes
  • After washing, make sure they are completely dried and aired before use

Stains:

  • Stains on duvets should be mopped up as quickly as possible
  • If the filling is feather or down, it is important to isolate the stain
  • Shake the feathers away from the affected area, and then treat the stain according to what it is

Trimmings:

Trimmings on garments can affect how they are washed or which product is used. For example, if a garment has a leather collar the care label may say 'Dry Clean Only' even if the rest of the garment is washable.
