How To

How To Wash Down Bedding: Comforters & Pillows | The Laundress

Apr 8, 2021

When it comes time to clean your down pillows and blankets, get down with our tricks! Although bulky, these items can be washed in the washing machine for clean, fluffy bedding that will feel like you’re laying in a literal cloud. Here’s how to do it.

Gather These Tools To Wash Your Comforters: 

Stain Solution, or Wash & Stain Bar, Wool & Cashmere Shampoo, Wool & Cashmere Spray, Dryer Balls

FOR DUVET INNERS & COMFORTERS:

Rule Of Thumb: If you protect duvet inners with a cover, it should only need to be laundered every season. Duvet covers should be on a washing rotation of 1-2 months depending on the fabric and your lifestyle – less for silk, more for pet owners.

STEP 1:
Hit The Spots

Treat stains and discoloration with Stain Solution which is specially formulated to target and break down tannin stains such as red wine, chocolate, coffee, and yellowing. Apply it directly to the stain and work it into the fabric with your finger or the Stain Brush.

STEP 2:
Set Your Wash Cycle

Select the woolens or delicate cycle on your washing machine and make sure the water temperature is cold and spin is on medium or low. Add the appropriate amount of Wool & Cashmere Shampoo according to the machine type and load size.

STEP 3:
Dry

Yes, down bedding can be put in the dryer. For the most successful finish, set the dryer to the low heat/low tumble cycle and repeat the drying cycle until there is no sign of moisture. To help redistribute and fluff up feathers and filling, add Dryer Balls to the cycle.

Tip: Halfway through the dryer cycle, remove the duvet and give it a good shake to redistribute feathers. Break up any remaining clumps with your hands before placing back in the dryer. At the end of the cycle, be sure the item is thoroughly dry to prevent mildew buildup. If the filling clumps together it means excess water is present and you should start another dry cycle.

STEP 4:
Freshen In A Flash

As you’re remaking the bed, spritz Wool & Cashmere Spray directly onto bedding from 6 inches away to add a fresh scent while removing odor. While we love cedar, moths and critters don't, so it’s great to use frequently between washes.

STEP 5:
Final Finish

While you shouldn’t iron down items (and never starch), we recommend steaming between launderings to help remove allergens and odor-causing bacteria.

FOR PILLOWS

Rule Of Thumb: Wash pillow liners bi-weekly and if you don’t have pillow liner, get them! Our heads contain natural oils that keep our hair shiny but make pillows grimey, so it’s good to have an extra layer between pillow cases and pillows. Pillow inserts should be laundered every season.

STEP 1:
Pretreat Stains

To pretreat oil-based stains, such as makeup, wet the Wash & Stain Bar with cool water and work a lather into the affected area.

STEP 2:
Machine Wash

Launder pillow inserts according to the duvet inners and comforter washing instructions above. Pillow cases should be washed bi-weekly according the fabric type.
