Protecting Your Down Comforter


A down comforter is a luxury item that can be enjoyed year after year -- if it is properly cared for. Frequent washings can damage a down comforter. Improper drying can lead to mold and mildew growth. For these reasons, most down comforter manufacturers recommend that down comforters only be washed every few years. As everyone knows, it is next to impossible to keep anything clean for years at a time. Consumers must protect their purchase with a down comforter cover.

A duvet used as a down comforter cover is ideal. A duvet generally works like an oversized pillowcase, with the comforter fitting inside. It has ties or buttons at the bottom to keep the comforter in place. The duvet protects the comforter from the possibility of spills or stains. A duvet also helps keep body oils, sweat, and cosmetics from touching the comforter. Oils and chemicals can break down a comforter, shortening its longevity, so a duvet can actually extend its lifespan.

In addition, a down comforter cover can widen your decorating horizons. Down comforters usually come in white, off-white, cream or another solid color - shades that can get a bit boring after a while. Since some comforters come with a 75-year warranty, you might want to change your color scheme well before you're ready to change comforters. By adding or changing your cover, you're able to change the look of your bedding without giving up your down comforter. Down comforter covers are available to match any color scheme or decorating style.

While down comforters should be washed as infrequently as possible, comforter covers can be washed as needed.

Comforter covers are available in a variety of materials, such as sateen, Egyptian cotton, percale, and wool. They can be bought at bedding and department stores.

L.L. Bean, Land's End, Home Visions, and Allergy Buyers Club are just a few of the many stores offering comforter covers.

With proper care and a good cover, your down comforter can provide many years of warmth and comfort.
