Machine Washing: On the inside of the duvet, there is a small label printed with maintenance and washing instructions. Careful people will find that 90% of duvets are marked to be hand washed. Machine washing and drying will make the duvet filling uneven, out of shape, and even drilled, affecting its beauty and warmth.

Hand wash: The duvet is bulky and difficult to wash. The hand-washed duvet must be rinsed clean and dried thoroughly, otherwise, the down inside will easily become moldy.

Soak the duvet in cold water for 20 minutes to fully moisten the duvet inside and outside. Dissolve the detergent (neutral, bleach-free) in warm water at 30 degrees, soak the duvet in it for a quarter of an hour, and then gently brush with a soft brush. Warm water should also be used for rinsing, which can help the detergent to be fully dissolved in the water so that the duvet can be rinsed more cleanly. After washing, take it out to dry in the sun. If possible, you can also use the dryer to dry at a low temperature first, and then shake it vigorously to make the down fluffy. In this way, it not only helps them down to restore their fluffy and soft texture but also does not damage the quilt.

Drying: Before using it for the first time, please dry it in the sun for 60 minutes; after using the duvet for a month or two, put it in the sun for a while, but do not expose it to the sun. In order to prevent dust, you can put a thin quilt cover appropriately. The best time to dry the quilt is from 10:00 am to 3:00 pm, for 2-3 hours in a row, and turn it over once in the middle, so that the quilt can be exposed to the inside and outside.

Storage: It is best to pat the duvet lightly for a while before use or collection to remove the floating dust, so as to avoid the old air being trapped in the quilt. When collecting, it should be placed in a well-ventilated and dry place to prevent moisture and humidity, which may cause mildew. You can also put an appropriate amount of insect repellant when storing, but do not seal it.

Times: In fact, the duvet should not be washed, but it should be cleaned after many years of use. This is because the duvet absorbs more moisture and also absorbs dust cilia, human volatiles, salt, etc., and the inner down will agglomerate, Deterioration, etc. If your duvet is used in all seasons, it is recommended to wash it once a year. If it is only used for warmth in winter, you can wash it once every 2-3 years. Therefore, it is best to cover the duvet with a quilt cover during use, and the quilt cover should be changed and washed frequently, which can not only prolong the service life of the duvet but also reduce the chance of the duvet being stained with dust and dirt.

It is best not to wash the duvet frequently, so as not to destroy the characteristics of its natural feathers, and pay attention to keeping the quilt clean, that is, to cover the quilt. At present, it is very easy to maintain the duvet for bedding. The method is the same as the maintenance method of down jackets and other down products.
