You should take advantage of these warm days and clean out your feather duvet. Drying it in the sun makes it softer and whiter. And I have the perfect solution to clean the feather-fluff duvet without creating lumps.
The feather-fluff duvet should be cleaned once every 2 or 3 years, depending on how often it’s used. Feathers contain organic oils that can be destroyed if the duvet is washed too often with harsh detergents.
When it dries, the fluff and feathers begin to break, no longer providing warmth or comfort. Therefore, experts recommend cleaning the feather duvet once every two years with a delicate solution.
🍃 How to clean the feather-fluff duvet at home so it does not leave lumps
Choose a sunny and warm day when washing the duvet to let it dry outside in the sun.
Fill half of the tub with warm water, add oxygen-based liquid detergent and a few tablespoons of baking soda. Let the feather duvet soak in cold water until it has cooled down. After draining the water, press gently on the duvet to squeeze it.
Fill the tub again with warm water and rinse the feather duvet as much as you can. Finally, you can add a few drops of a delicate laundry softener, but do so in a small amount so that the inside fluff does not absorb too much.
🌞 Let the duvet dry in the sun
Roll it like a pancake to make sure the feathers inside don’t form lumps, then take it outside to dry in the sun. As soon as the outer material has dried, shake the duvet vigorously and beat it slowly with your palms to allow the inside feathers to dry evenly.
The feather duvet should be shaken several times until it dries completely. You will notice that it is whiter and fluffier after drying.
