Tips For Cleaning Your Comforter 

Posted on October 26, 2021 by Steven Toltz

While you probably have a set schedule for cleaning your sheets, chances are you’re a bit less on-the-ball about washing your comforter. That’s understandable! A big, bulky piece of bedding like a comforter can feel tricky to wash, especially if it has a stain or is too big for your home washing machine. But cleaning your comforter doesn’t have to be a hassle. We’ve rounded up some basic cleaning tips for keeping your comforter and bedding clean and stain-free.

How Often To Clean Your Comforter

You should probably be cleaning your comforter more often than you think! Comforters should be cleaned two to three times per year. A great way to remember to wash your comforter is to clean it each time the season changes. Feeling a chill in the air? Leaves changing and pumpkin spice all the rage? Then it’s time to toss your comforter in the washer. 

Sheets And Duvets

You should be cleaning your sheets and duvets much more frequently than your comforter. In fact, sheets and duvets should be washed weekly or biweekly, and if you’re sick, you should clean your bedding as soon as you start feeling better.
