WE ALL know our comforters need washing – but it can be a struggle if your washing machine isn’t big enough.
And even if you can throw it in there, you run the risk of it not drying properly and becoming moldy.
Luckily, cleaning queen Lynsey Crombie, who is teaming up with Vileda to share her cleaning tips, has revealed how you can clean your duvet — without putting it in the washing machine.
Speaking to the Express, she said: “If you’re lucky enough to have a large drum washing machine, most duvets can be washed this way using the duvet setting.
“If that’s not the case, most dry cleaners offer a duvet cleaning service.”
However, if you don’t feel like taking a trip to the dry cleaners, there’s another option – and the best part?
It’s totally free.
Lynsey recommends hanging your comforter on your clothesline on a hot summer day.
She said to make sure you use a strong clothesline like Vileda’s retractable clothesline and leave it outside on a sunny day.
The sun is a natural disinfectant that kills bacteria and germs.
If you have stains you can also apply pure hydrogen peroxide to the stain, once the stain has been removed rinse away.
You can also do it indoors if you don’t have outdoor space, Ysney adds, by using a Vileda Infinity Airer or a clothes rack strong enough to hold your comforter.
