While most of us tend to clean our bed sheets on a regular basis, we often neglect the one of our most used items on our beds. The comforter. It keeps us warm at night and is often our cozy place. But you wouldn’t be so comfortable if you really knew how dirty they can get. Dust mites and pet fur are just two of the culprits in getting your comforter dirty. The number one polluter is your own body.
So how often to wash your comforter? Let’s get to it!
How Often to Wash Your Comforter?
Bulky sheets, comforters , and duvets should be cleaned 2-3 times per year. A good tip is to do this around when the seasons change to help you remember and stay consistent. Doctors also recommend cleaning all of your bedding after someone has been sick. Which is especially important in the time of Covid-19.
Tips for Cleaning Comforters
- Make sure to read the tag! Before you do anything with your comforter make sure to read the tag for proper cleaning instructions. This is especially important with delicate materials.
- If you choose to do it yourself, use a machine large enough to thoroughly clean your comforter. A lot of newer washing machines have settings for bulky sheets but this does not make up for the lack of space. A large comforter (Queen and King+ sizes) need very large machines to properly clean the piece. Most of the time you can find these at laundry mats or at a dry cleaners.
- Weigh the risks. Expensive comforters can also be the most delicate and often have the most trouble to wash in a home washing machines. While many people have had success doing this, many others have not. It can end with you replacing your comforter.
- . Have your comforter dry cleaned professionally. The safest and easiest way to have get your comforter as good as new is to have a it cleaned by a professional. They will have the proper machines to thoroughly clean your items and many (like us) will use green earth detergents to guarantee the best results.
