Watercolor comforter set – Nothing keeps you warm and cozy on a cool night like a feather duvet full of feathers. Down comforters can be expensive. Learning to properly clean, protect and store your feather comforter will protect your investment and reward you with years of comfort and warmth. Air out a new comforter for one or two days in direct sunlight. After using the comforter, air out every three to six months or whenever you feel you need to refresh. If you cannot hang it out, put it in the dryer with a dryer sheet in low heat until the odors have dissipated. Fluff your quilt every day to keep the mat filling and lump formation.
Cover your feather watercolor comforter set with a duvet cover to keep it clean. Invest in more than a duvet cover so when one is in the laundry a clean one is in your duvet. Clean your duvet with a clean, damp cloth. Do not wet the cloth. Wash your duvet, unless it is dry clean, in a large washer. If your washer is not big enough, take it to a commercial laundry and use the large capacity machine. Use a mild detergent and cold water cycle to prevent dry and brittle hair. Dry the duvet over low heat and make sure it is completely dry. Mold can form in a duvet that is not completely dry. Steam wrinkles on the quilt shell with a hand steam. Never iron a down comforter.
Keep your watercolor comforter set in a bag made of a natural fiber such as cotton so you can breathe. Storage of moisture in plastic traps which stimulates the formation of mold. Read the care instructions when you buy a new comforter to check if your duvet is washable and should not be cleaned dry. Power fill indicates the number of cubic inches an ounce of feathers occupy. 750 is the highest number of fill, 300 is the lowest and 550 is the mean. The larger the number, the warmer the duvet will be. Wash your feather comforter every three to five years. Professional cleaning or dry cleaning is preferable to do the job yourself.
