How to Wash & Dry a Comforter at Home
Unless the label specifically instructs otherwise—you can wash and dry your comforter at home using a large capacity washer and dryer with a mild laundry detergent. Simply spot clean stains and repair holes or tears, then wash using a bulky cycle with cool or warm water. Drying instructions can vary by comforter, but generally, it’s best to dry using low or no heat.
Comforters are categorized by the type of materials they’re filled with. Popular fillings include down, polyester, wool, cotton and silk. The most common fillers are down or polyester and both can be washed at home. If you’re unsure, check your care tag to learn more about your comforter’s filling.
Similar to a comforter, a duvet is an insert that works as the fill for a protective case or duvet cover. Remember to remove your duvet cover before washing—duvets should be washed separately per our steps below and duvet covers can be washed with other bedding.
