Cleaning a comforter is no easy task because of its thickness and size. Just like sheets, pillowcases and covers, comforters require special care to maintain the softness and comfort that they offer during the winter. To protect textile fibers – but also in the interests of hygiene – a washing machine is the best option, provided you have the appropriate machine.
For comforters which are too fragile, i.e. those filled with down and feathers, professional laundry washing is recommended. To avoid the formation of balls or clumping inside your comforter, add two or three tennis balls to your machine. The balls will beat the comforter during the wash cycle.
