Household Items: Comforters, Quilts, Duvets, Bedspreads, Afghans, Pillows, and Sleeping Bags
As you are aware, many of the household items are bulky and if you chose to wash them in your home washing machine, you may find it difficult and sometimes impossible. Washing these items properly takes gentle commercial equipment.Many homemakers wash their sheets and blankets fairly regularly at home, but other bedding doesn’t fit in home washing machines or made of materials that the average person does not know how to properly clean and dry. Professional dry cleaners like Westbank Dry Cleaning know the best ways to clean these items and ensure that after cleaning and drying that they smell fresh, clean, and are in good condition.
Everyday Care of Household Items
Comforters and quilts can be gently vacuumed to remove dust and allergens. Do not touch the vacuum directly to them, but instead hold the nozzle attachment about 1/4 inch above the surface of the fabric.
Cleaning and Laundering Household Items
If you decide to wash your bedding at home, you first need to check the care labels to see what the manufacturer recommends, but if the tag is missing or if it never had one, you better be prepared to know how to properly was items with cotton batting, down filled, polyester fiber, poly/cotton blend, and wool.
Rather than harm your washing machine or bedding, we strongly recommend that you bring your household items to one of our Westbank Dry Cleaning locations.
- If your comforter or duvet has silk, velvet, or wool — even as a small embellishment — do not wash at home. These fabrics may be damaged in water. Take it to a dry cleaner to be cleaned safely.
- Check the care label for wool — if it is not marked washable, do not put it in your washer. It may be vulnerable to shrinkage or distortion. Take it to a dry cleaner.
- Do not put quilts stuffed with cotton batting in the washing machine — the stuffing will get bunched up and clumpy.
- A comforter must be completely dry before using or storing — mildew can grow inside damp down and ruin it.
- Do not over clean your down comforter — the natural oils in the material may be stripped over time.
- If an old and fragile down comforter needs cleaning, take it to a dry cleaner that will professionally clean it and preserve it for further use..
