If you find that you need to clean your comforter, here are a few reminders and hints (via essortment):
Down comforters can be dry cleaned, but can be pricey. You can use a washing machine, but use cold water and no fabric softer, and only a small amount of detergent. It is best not to use a colored laundry detergent, and hopefully one with no dyes as these can possibly stain. One tip when drying is to put a clean tennis shoe to help fluff up the down and distribute it. Hanging it to dry outside will add a fresh clean scent. Does anyone else have any tips about caring for down comforters? Please share!
