Cleaning a Duvet and Duvet Cover to Combat Dust Mite Allergies. 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.
It`s 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 it`s 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.
Whatever you do. keep in mind that the benefits of purchasing a duvet are extraordinary. And the best part is that they are low maintenance. provide great quality. and last for a long time when taken care of properly through regular washing and cleaning.
When you purchase a high quality down or silk comforter to use as your duvet insert. the product will last for many years. and each of those years can realize a utility savings associated with a lower thermostat setting. Duvet covers can be used to give new life to your old decorative comforters. blankets and quilts.
