How do I care for my bedding?

After reading this article, you'll realize that maintaining your bedding is no longer a chore but a well-being, and you are the first to benefit from it! ♥️

We can lose up to 1.5L of water per night in addition to all the moisture we produce. The first touches are of course your sheets, but just as much your duvets and pillows. In order to limit bacterial development, it is important to regularly maintain these precious items to ensure a long and healthy life. Nevertheless, a natural product will not have the same washing properties as a synthetic product. Below are our tips:

Caring for bedding?

1 - Natural down duvets ♥️

The advantage of naturalness is excellent thermal regulation and perfect air circulation. Down has an infinite lifespan and inflates continuously to give you a fluffy and soft feel for life. This precious material that is down is considered to be the highest quality material on the market but can also be fragile. So..:

- SPOT WASH FIRST -

- A stain? It's better to wash the stained area, using a natural soap solution and a little water, rather than your entire duvet. This will avoid weakening the natural components.

- AERATION -

- Aerate your down for several hours once a month or, in early summer and late fall, on a sunny, slightly windy day.

- WASHING -

- Encourage washing at a professional, who will wash your duvet properly and gently.

- It is possible to wash your duvet from home with great care: the duvet should not be forced into your washing machine. So make sure you have a tub big enough to accommodate it. Use products that are as natural as possible, without chemical agents or detergents, as this will considerably damage your down. Put a cycle at 30 or 40 degrees and a very short spin cycle.

- DRYING -

- If time permits, lay your duvet outside. Tap regularly on the tiles to distribute and separate the down inside. Otherwise, the down may stick together, creating small balls and it will be difficult to separate when dry!

- Dry in a dryer, with low heat and wool drying balls (very important to distribute the down evenly).

And there you go, your down is ready again to give you a long and beautiful night's sleep ♥️

2 - Synthetic duvets ♥️

Whether for allergic or simply ethical reasons, synthetic duvets have the advantage of being a little less fragile than their natural cousins, but still require just as much love.

- SPOT WASH FIRST -

- A stain? It's better to wash the stained area, using a natural soap solution and a little water, rather than your entire duvet. This will avoid weakening the components.

- VENTILATION -

- Air your duvet for several hours once a month or, in early summer and late fall, on a sunny, slightly windy day.

- WASHING -

- It is possible to wash your synthetic duvet from home with great care: the duvet should not be forced into your washing machine. So make sure you have a tub big enough to accommodate it. Use the most natural products possible, without chemical agents or detergents. Cycle at 30 or 40 degrees and spin normally.

- Professional washing is always preferable to avoid any surprises!

- DRYING -

- If time permits, lay your duvet outside. Turn it over from time to time.

- Dry it in the dryer, using low heat and wool drying balls to keep it puffy!

3 - Natural pillows ♥️

It is important to protect your pillow against sweat, skin oil and drool (yes!) with a pillow protector(available here). This washable and waterproof protection will considerably increase the life of your pillow.

- SPOT WASH FIRST -

- A stain? It's better to wash the stained area, using a natural soap solution and a little water, rather than your entire pillow. This will avoid weakening the components.

- VENTILATION -

- Air your pillow for several hours once a month on a sunny and slightly windy day. Tap generously on the entire surface to evacuate as much moisture, dust mites and/or dust as possible.

- WASHING -

- Encourage professional washing.
-We strongly advise against washing your down pillow at home. Indeed, since the filling is more compacted in a pillow than in a duvet, the fibre will not dry properly, which could cause considerable damage to the duvet. However, if this is very occasional, you can use a delicate program without detergent.

- DRYING -

- Encourage professional drying.

- If you've washed your down pillow at home, air dry it if possible, stirring it frequently to move the filling and ensure it dries completely. It is also possible to dry in a dryer on a delicate programme, preferably cold air, with wool drying balls to encourage the placement of the filling and prevent the fibres from sticking together.

- DRYING -

- Dry your pillow in the open air if possible, stirring it frequently to move the filling and ensure that it is completely dry.
