Care For Down Bedding
High quality down bedding should not be washed or dry cleaned as this will rob the down of its natural oils, leaving it clumpy. It will also weaken the down proof quality of the fabric. We use the all natural European traditional method for cleaning, ultra violet light. This will protect your downs, thoroughly clean, refresh & re-fluff them.
To ensure enjoyment of your precious down bedding for many years, we recommend the following:
Renovate (clean and new cover) every 3 - 5 years due to hair oil, as this will weaken the down proof ticking and cause the down to leak out.
Clean every 5 years to refresh and re-fluff.
Renovate (clean and new cover) every 10 years to refresh, re-fluff, make like new.
Down Toppers & Down Featherbeds:
Renovate (clean and new cover) every 7 - 10 years to refresh, re-fluff, make like new.
Note: When only cleaning comforters, stains will not come out of this very tightly woven material. They must be removed immediately. For a small stain move the down away and take mild soap and water on a cloth. Dry thoroughly. For larger stains or pet stains we recommend total renovation (clean and new cover).
In Between Cleaning
Down loves fresh air so when it comes time for spring cleaning hang out your comforters, pillows and toppers on a dry, warm sunny day to refresh and plump up. For large items like down beds and featherbeds hang over a table or chairs outside.
In winter you can put your pillow, comforters and thin toppers in a dryer on low or fluff for 15 mins to refresh and re-fluff.
