How long do comforters last?

You can expect your comforter to last 15-25 years with proper care, which is much longer than most other types of bedding. Because it doesn’t have to support the weight the way pillows and mattresses do, according to Stewart, you should remember to keep it covered and air it out regularly for it to maintain its longevity.


In the 17th century, getting up in the middle of the night was normal. People slept in two segments divided by an hour or two of alertness (time for reading, praying, intimacy or socializing with others).
