The duvet can be used by itself or fitted into a specially designed cover to prevent dirt and stains; this cover can be cleaned regularly. Cleaning a duvet may not be necessary unless it is dirtied or damaged beyond reuse in which case its easier to replace the old with a new one much like a mattress.
When you are looking at that comforter and seeing that terrible stain in the middle of it we both know you are going is it that noticeable? Well worry no more if you have a duvet cover on the comforter you will no longer have to clean that comforter only the cover. For washing these are the best things in the world. Throw into the washer on either warm or cold use a nice mild detergent and let it do its thing. When it is done the duvet cover can right in the dryer on low heat of course and you are done. It is that simple you cannot say that much for your comforter and you will be ecstatic at the results. No more time wasted when you take a full day to wash and dry your comforter instead you are good to go in a couple of hours.
Giving an instant lift to your room. A Duvet-cover comes is all sizes colours and designs. Good quality duvets come with a high price and it is not feasible to buy one in every colour. Duvet-covers give that instant lift to your room by just changing the duvet-covers to suit your tastes. You can find duvet covers in attractive and appealing designs which you could use for every occasion. A duvet-cover set usually comprises of a duvet cover and also pillow covers to match the duvet.
Duvets for children. Planning bedding for small children requires a lot of effort. Because children keep growing buying duvets and duvet covers can be an expensive affair as sizes have to be changed and maintenance becomes a problem as they may have to be changed often if they are stained or damaged. Some children have independent tastes and may want duvets in sizes of their choice featuring designs and styles which catch their fancy from time to time. However they can be a good alternative to regular bedding where space is a constraint and where smaller children have to be placed in the master bedroom for easier supervision.
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.
Its worth noting that it takes special measures beyond a simple run through the washer to kill off dust mites. Dust mites have been shown to be more effectively killed off if certain essential oils are used in the washing process such as pine eucalyptus or peppermint oil. These can kill a large majority of the dust mites in the duvet and will also leave a refreshing scent. Unfortunately just killing dust mites is note quite enough. Most allergies to dust mites are to their waste products and their bodies (dead or live) and so it might be effective to shake out or even beat your duvet with a broom as its suspended from a line. After this you will need to redistribute the filling material so that it is evenly placed. If you start out with a dust mite proof duvet cover you will not have to take such extreme cleaning measures of your duvet you can simply focus your cleaning on the duvet cover on a regular basis and still avoid allergies related to dust mites in a dirty duvet.
