When you have children you will notice that they have a tendency of dirtying their linens most of the time at a very fast rate. The best way to avoid this is by purchasing duvet covers. This will enable to avoid any expenses of taking the duvet to the laundry or having the trouble of washing such a big and heavy comforter all the time. The duvet covers however are not that complex if you want to remove them for washing or if you want to change them. Most of them have got buttons or even better zippers round the duvet.
These covers are usually removable and so once they get dirty you can easily wash them. Duvet covers have got lots of advantages because not only are you able to wash them when they are dirty but you can also put different covers.

Duvets originated from the French and it basically means down. Many people do not know the difference between a duvet and a comforter. There is a very big difference but they both serve the same purpose. A comforter in contrast is sewn all round whereas the duvet has an outer cover which resembles that of a pillow case.
Duvets became popular around the world in the 20th century as a convenient form of bed covering. In some parts of the world they are also known as quilts and are used as extra bedding or mattresses in households in addition to regular mattresses for kids and extra guests.
Special duvet covers to battle the dust-mites. Asthma sufferers or allergy prone sufferers have a hard time keeping the dust-mites in check. Dust-mites are microscopic arachnids which thrive on dust especially in the down fillings of pillows and quilts. They comprise of almost 80% of the dust around the house!
As they are available in many sizes you can make your choice depending on the type of duvet that you have. The three main types of duvet covers are the twin full queen and the king. When you go to the market or if you are purchasing them online make sure that you know the size of your bed. This is because you cannot buy a king size duvet cover for a small bed.
