How to wash comforters

  • Before you wash your comforter, remove any stains and repair tears
  • Choose a washing machine that is the right size for your comforter
  • For best results, use an appropriate laundry detergent and choose the correct washing cycle settings
  • Home dryers can damage delicate fibers in down comforters, so it’s best to air dry them instead.
  • Toss a few tennis balls into the dryer with your comforter to help fluff it as it dries
