    How to clean a duvet

    Wash your duvet once a year in a washing machine to ensure it’s kept fresh. Doubles may need to be taken to a laundrette.

    Add a small amount of detergent to a cool cycle. Use a netural pH formula that won’t dry out the feathers or remove their natural oil. Remember to check the label before washing.

    Tumble dry on a low heat and air the duvet (on a washing line if it’s a warm day) to ensure it’s completely dry before you put it back on the bed.

    TOP TIP: Toss in a couple of tennis balls to plump up the duvet as it’s drying. This will stop it clumping together.
