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.
Make sure that the duvet cover is not to cheap or flimsy or it will not provide protection for the duvet or comforter inside. If you get a good quality duvet cover, you will be able to wash it many times and will hardly ever have to clean the duvet, which is much more difficult.
Special duvet covers to battle the dust-mites. Asthma sufferers or allergy prone sufferers have a hard time keeping the dust-mites in check. Dust-mites are microscopic arachnids which thrive on dust especially in the down fillings of pillows and quilts. They comprise of almost 80% of the dust around the house!
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.
Special Allergen blocking pillow covers and duvet-covers give the allergy sufferers a nightmare-free sleep due to its special tight weave of the fabric. Even after frequent washing the fabric remains soft and snug trapping the allergens and preventing breakouts.
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.
