For best results use large capacity washer and dryer. Machine wash cold. Gentle cycle. Use mild soap. Do not bleach. After complete cycle, reset to normal spin dry cycle for maximum water extraction. Tumble dry low heat.
Fluff your comforter when you make your bed. By providing a steady flow of air, your down will continue to loft. Redistribute your comforter as needed for baffle box designs. To redistribute the fill of your comforter, lay your comforter on a flat surface and simply push the down in place with the heel of your hand and forearm.
We recommend you professionally launder your bedding every 3-5 years. It is possible to wash your bedding yourself, but you may jeopardize the life of your comforter.
We are reluctant to recommend nonprofessional laundering because home washers are often too small. Most household washing machines have an agitator in the center, which places unnecessary stress on the comforter.
If you decide to wash your comforter yourself, use a gentle detergent and a low heat drying setting. Be sure to dry the product completely for approximately 8-12 hours. Products must be dried in a machine. Line drying is not recommended.
Down Blanket and Throw
Wash with a mild detergent on a gentle setting with warm water.
Dry completely on a low heat setting. Any lumps or clumps of fill indicates dampness; continue to dry until you are sure there is no moisture left.
Pillows should be covered with a pillow protector in addition to decorative pillowcases. These protectors, which often have a zipper closure, provide an additional layer between the pillow and a pillowcase.
Use a mild detergent on a warm water and gentle setting. After the wash cycle is complete, rinse the pillow two additional times to rid the pillow of any soap that may still be in the pillow. Then spin the pillow two additional times to rid the pillow of excess water.
Dry the pillow completely on a low heat setting. For pillows with internal chambers, you may need to dry the pillow for 6-8 hours. Between cycles, remove the pillow and hand fluff. The pillows may still be damp inside even when they feel dry to the touch. Any lumps, clumps, or smell of fill indicates dampness; continue to dry until you are sure there is no moisture left in your pillow.
Between washings, the pillow can be refluffed on an air fluff setting in the dryer. Include a couple of clean tennis balls and a fabric softener sheet for extra fluff and a fresh smell.
