What is a duvet?
Before we get into how to fluff your duvet, let’s first understand what a duvet is. A duvet is a type of bedding that consists of a soft, flat bag filled with feathers, down, wool, or a synthetic alternative. It is meant to be used as a cover for a comforter or as a standalone comforter. Duvets come in various sizes and colors.
Why should you fluff your duvet?
A duvet that has been used for a while may lose its fluffiness and become flat, lumpy, and uncomfortable. Fluffing your duvet will help restore its shape, increase its ability to trap air, and make it more comfortable to sleep under. Additionally, fluffing your duvet will also help get rid of any dust, dirt, and other allergens that may have accumulated inside it over time.
How do you fluff your duvet?
To fluff your duvet, start by shaking it out vigorously to loosen any clumps of filling. Next, lay it flat on a bed or a large surface and manually fluff it up by pulling and pushing the filling to different areas of the duvet. Alternatively, you can put your duvet in the dryer on a low heat setting with a few clean tennis balls or dryer balls. The balls will help break up any clumps of filling and distribute them evenly throughout the duvet, resulting in a fluffier, softer duvet.
When should you fluff your duvet?
You should ideally fluff your duvet every two to three months, especially if you use it frequently. Fluffing your duvet at regular intervals will help prevent any permanent flattening or matting of the filling. However, if you notice any clumps or unevenness in your duvet, you should fluff it immediately.
How can you maintain your duvet’s fluffiness?
Besides fluffing your duvet regularly, there are a few things you can do to maintain its fluffiness. For instance, avoid sitting or standing on your duvet as it can compress the filling and cause it to flatten out. Additionally, make sure to follow the care instructions on your duvet’s label when washing and drying it. Using a duvet cover will also help protect your duvet from dust and dirt, and prevent it from becoming soiled, which can affect its fluffiness.
