While comforters and duvets may not require a wash as often as sheets and pillowcases, it’s still important to keep them as clean as possible. And in case you’re wondering if you can wash your washable duvet or comforter in a washing machine, the short answer is: you can! Always check and follow your appliance and product use and care instructions before beginning any task, as they should be your primary source of information.
The filling in your duvet or comforter can ball up during a washing and drying cycle, making your duvet or comforter look less than inviting, so it’s important to follow these simple steps.
