The duvet itself cannot be washed because the filling would be ruined, most especially in the case of real down filling. This is why duvet covers are so useful. They serve as a giant pillow case over the duvet. Buttons, zippers or ties at the top of the duvet keep the cover secured until you need to remove it. The covers can be laundered with the sheets and pillow cases in a washer at home, for your convenience.
A duvet cover essentially is a pillow case for your comforter. They come in a variety of shapes and colors to fit any comforter that you own. Instead of having your comforter get dirty, your cover will get the brunt of the spill, which is going to be giving you peace of mind. Remember, with the varieties that are available, you will be able to find the perfect duvet cover for any room and for any personality.

These days the filling of a duvet doesn't have to be down, but can be most any other fiber that is used for quilting material from man made to natural materials the variety is really up to the preference of the buyer. Some will want to avoid down for allergy reasons for instance.

Comforters are usually very expensive and hard to store so owning many of them is out of the question. Duvets however are easy to store and much more affordable. So you can style with different types of fabric, different patterns, and even with different enclosures. You can go for a traditional button up enclosure or choose the very practical zipper.
Special duvet covers to battle the dust-mites. Asthma sufferers or allergy prone sufferers have a hard time keeping the dust-mites in check.

The main benefit of duvet covers is that it protects your comforter or duvet form dirt or stain.

Even though duvet covers can also be expensive, at least they are not as expensive as the comforter. You can easily replace the cover with a fresh new one to have a comfortable sleep.
