Pearlie Witt Duvet Cover July 12th, 2018 - 10:00:29
A duvet cover is a large sort of pillowcase that is used to encase the duvet and protect it from getting dirty. Most duvet owners use duvet covers because they are much easier to launder than the actual duvet. There are a nearly unlimited number of different designs for duvet covers, ranging from solid colors to elaborate patterns.
Some of these duvet covers are not designed for traditional washing. Most of them may need to be dry washed to remove dirt without damaging the cloth. However cotton and blended materials are washable at home and all you need to do is to follow the washing instructions carefully.
Having a duvet cover would protect your costly duvet from dust and stains. But, have you ever thought about the upkeep of covers? These are simple sewn pieces of fabric in which the duvet is enclosed. Comforts or duvets are heavy and of delicate make that could lose its sheen if washed regularly or handled roughly. However, by draping them with covers, you are rest assured of its longevity.
When it comes to cleaning the duvet cover, it really depends on the fabrics. If you have a silk or high quality cotton then you won't really be able to just toss them in the washing machine. They will require more care, however most duvet covers are very easy to care for. That is also one of their many benefits, the fact that they can keep your comforter from getting dirty.
In the United States, many people say "duvet" when referring to a duvet cover; whereas, in Europe and in Canada, most people refer to a down comforter as a duvet. Duvets are like comforters, except that they have duvet covers which are replaceable and washable, much like large pillowcases.
One last step in reaching the duvet covers used today took place when the first homemaker became tired of her decorative comforter and realized that she could cover it with a duvet cover to produce a fresh new bedroom look. Blankets and quilts can also be used as duvet inserts, so whether one of these preceded the decorative comforter as a duvet insert is not really known.
