Even with a good duvet cover it would be wise to regularly wash your duvet however it should not be necessary to go to such extreme measures to remove dust mites from the duvet if you have an effective duvet cover. One advantage to the duvet cover is if they are allergen proof you should be able to just change out the duvet cover for washing on a frequent basis and then on a less frequent schedule clean your duvet. Another advantage to this routine is that you will be able to change out the look and feel of your bedroom on a regular basis as well if you have duvet covers with various designs.
What are Duvet-covers? A Duvet cover is an important part of a bedding arrangement which protects the duvet from dirt fading and wear and tear. It is easy to remove and to put on which also saves the cost of buying different duvets every time you want to change the design or the colour of your duvet. There is an array of different types of duvet covers to savour some duvet covers even come with special double reversible designs which could change the colour or look just by turning the cover inside out.
Before we look at their importance let us first try to understand what duvets are and where they originated from. A duvet is just like a bag filled with warm fabrics like feathers or wool. 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.
Although duvet inserts and covers have been around for a long time their popularity in the US has lagged behind their popularity in other countries until relatively recently. Their popularity in America is now growing as people realize their many advantages over other types of bedding. If you have not yet experienced these advantages for yourself you are encouraged to try one soon.
Duvet Covers have become a popular choice for bedding around the world. Originally it was a type of bedding found in continental Europe or Scandinavia. The Duvet draws its name from the French word for down and that is the material that the quilt that a duvet covers is used with contains. The duvet (or quilt) can contain feathers silk wool cotton polyester batting or other artificial fibers. This duvet is then used with a duvet cover to keep it clean or to coordinate it with the decor of a room. The duvet may be confused with a quilt but the distinction is typically that a quilt is used on top of other bedding a duvet is used as the sole bedcovering.
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. On a similar note you cannot buy a small one for a big bed. This will make your bed to look funny and not as elegant as you want it look.
