Drying a Duvet
When you get your duvet out of the machine, don’t be alarmed. If it’s a feather duvet, the damp feathers will have become darker, and will make your duvet seem a little discoloured. This is nothing to worry about, and it will return to its normal colour once it’s dried completely.
To dry, it really is best to use a dryer, although finding one large enough can be tricky and you should always follow the care instructions. Again, if your home dryer won’t accommodate the duvet, your local laundrette should have a suitable alternative.
Some people naturally prefer to line dry, but the issue in terms of duvets is that they take so long to dry out that they can start to grow mildew and mould and they can start to smell a little musty. The quicker they dry, the better. A good compromise could be to partially dry the duvet in the machine, and then allow to air dry afterwards.
