Do you wash comforters in hot or cold water?

Choosing the gentle or delicate cycle on your washing machine is best, and if possible, add an extra rinse. The care label on your comforter will usually list a recommended temperature setting. Using cold or warm water is typically better for colors and fabrics, while hot water kills dust mites – although you shouldn’t machine dry if this is your goal.
