After reading this article, you will realize that the maintenance of your bedding doesn’t have to be a chore. It’s another great way of improving your well-being, and you are the first to benefit from it! ♥️

We can lose up to 1.5 L of water per night, in addition to all the moisture we produce. Your sheets are the first contact, but so are your comforter and pillows. In order to limit bacterial growth, it is important to regularly clean these precious items to give them a long and good life. You also have to remember that a natural product will not have the same washing properties as a synthetic one.

How to keep your bedding fresh?

1 - Natural Down Comforters ♥️

Natural fibers offer excellent thermal regulation and a perfect air circulation. Down has an infinite lifespan: It regains its swollen shape naturally to give you a fluffy finish, for life. This precious material is considered the most premium material on the market, but it can also be fragile. So!

- SPOT WASH FIRST -

—You see a stain? Don’t wash your entire comforter. Instead, use a natural soap and a little water on the stain only to avoid weakening the natural fibers of your down.

- AERATION -

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

- WASHING -

—If possible, choose to have your comforter washed by a professional, who will wash it properly and gently.

—You can also wash your comforter at home, but with great care: don’t force your comforter into your washing machine. You need to make sure you have a tub large enough to accommodate it. Use the most natural cleaning products possible, without chemical agents or detergents, as this will considerably damage your down. Set the cycle to 30 or 40 degrees and a very short spin.

- DRYING -

—If the weather permits, lay your comforter outside. Tap regularly on the squares to distribute and separate the down inside. Otherwise, the down may stick together, creating clumps, and become difficult to separate once dry!

—You can also put the comforter in the dryer at low heat with wool drying balls (very important to distribute the down evenly).And there you go, your comforter is ready to offer you beautiful and long nights of sleep again ♥️

2 - Synthetic Comforters ♥️

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 -

—You see a stain? Don’t wash your entire comforter. Instead, use a natural soap and a little water on the stain only to avoid weakening the synthetic fibers of your down.

- AERATION -

—Let your comforter breath for several hours once a month or, in early summer and late fall, on a sunny and slightly windy day.

- WASHING -

—You can also wash your synthetic duvet at home, but with great care: don’t force your comforter into your machine. You need to make sure you have a tub large enough to accommodate it. Use the most natural cleaning products possible, without chemical agents or detergents. Set the cycle to 30 or 40 degrees with normal spin.

—Professional washing is always preferable to avoid any surprises!

- DRYING -

—If the weather permits, lay your comforter outside. Turn it over from time to time.

—You can also put it in the dryer at low heat, with wool dryer balls to keep it all puffy!

3 - Our Natural pillows ♥️

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

- SPOT WASH FIRST -

—You see a stain? Don’t wash your entire pillow. Instead, use a natural soap and a little water on the stain only to avoid weakening the natural fibers of your pillow.

- AERATION -

—Let your pillow breath for several hours once a month on a sunny and slightly windy day. Tap generously over the entire surface to remove as much moisture, dust mites, or dust as possible.

- WASHING -

—Preferably, have it washed by a professional.

—We strongly advise against washing your down pillow at home. Indeed, the stuffing being more compacted in a pillow than in a comforter, the fiber will not be able to dry adequately, which could considerably damage it. As a last resort, and if it is very occasional, you can put the pillow in your washing machine on delicate cycle, without detergent.

- DRYING -

—Preferably, have it dried by a professional.

—If you have washed your down pillow at home, air dry it if possible, stirring it frequently to move the stuffing around and ensure that it is completely dry. It is also possible to dry your pillow in a dryer on delicate cycle, preferably cold air, with wool dryer balls to allow the stuffing to move and avoid that the fibers stick together.
