Comment entretenir un duvet fibre ?

Down fiber is valued for its light weight, warmth and comfort, making it a popular choice for duvets and pillows.

However, to maintain the quality of your down and extend its lifespan, it is essential to maintain it properly. In this article, we provide you with practical advice on how to take care of your fiber duvet.

1. Use a cover

To protect your down fiber comforter or pillow from dirt, stains and general wear and tear, always use a clean cover. Choose a breathable cotton cover that will allow air to circulate. Wash the cover regularly to maintain a clean sleeping environment.

2. Shake regularly

From time to time, shake your comforter or down pillow to redistribute the fibers inside. This will help prevent the down from bunching and maintain its loft.

3. Ventilate

To eliminate moisture and odors, air out your fiber down comforter or pillow by placing it outside for a few hours in dry weather. Avoid leaving it in direct sunlight, as this can damage the fibers.

4. Clean stains quickly

If you accidentally spill something on your fiber duvet, act quickly. Use a clean, damp cloth to gently dab the stain, avoiding rubbing too vigorously. If necessary, use a mild stain remover suitable for the type of stain you have.

5. Machine wash

Most down fiber comforters and pillows can be machine washed. Always consult the care label or manufacturer's instructions for specific recommendations. Use a mild detergent and a gentle cycle on low heat.

6. Drying

Dry your fiber down comforter or pillow on low heat in a dryer. Tennis balls or dryer balls are ideal for preventing the down from clumping together while drying. Don’t hesitate to add a few to the drum.

Before putting your duvet back on your bed or storing it, make sure it is completely dry. Complete drying is essential to prevent the formation of mold responsible for bad odors.

By following these maintenance tips, you will extend the life of your fiber duvet and continue to enjoy its lightness and comfort.
