/ Washing / dry cleaning duvet jacket
Or something else.?
I have washed my duvet twice, first time with TX10, second time with regular washing powder. Both times they came out fine!
Tumbledry for about 3hrs, with a trainer or similar to break up feathers.
Daunting at first, not as bad as expected (have even washed a 300g down bag, similar results).
Are you about this season?
Washed my down jacket recently. Followed the washing instructions on the label, used the Grangers wash stuff then took it to a laundrette and tumble dried for a couple of hours with some tennis balls.
When I took it out the washing machine at first it looked quite bad, but plumped up nicely after the tumble drying.
Hope this helps.
DO NOT dry clean it! It ruins the feathers.
I've just left one to be professionally cleaned at Franklins in Sheffield. They have a very good reputation.
Cheers, will give it a wash and a tumble then
Stuart will drop you a text
