Caring properly for your natural filled duvets is essential to keep them looking and feeling their best. One of the key points to remember is to always use a duvet cover to protect the duvet itself from perspiration, soiling and general wear & tear.
Each morning when making your bed, give the duvet a good shake which fluffs and freshens the filling by creating air movement. Only feather and down filled duvets require shaking, natural fibre or fleece filled varieties should not be shaken as this can lead to tearing.
Brinkhaus duvets require regular airing in fresh air which allows the filling to fully release any absorbed humidity and restores its capacity to absorb the perspiration we naturally give off in our sleep.
Do not sit or sleep on top of your Brinkhaus duvet regularly or for prolonged periods of time which can cause matting of the filling and reduces the effectiveness of the item over time.
If lightly soiled, your Brinkhaus duvet can by spot cleaned using a mild washing powder. Do not use any products containing bleach as this will strip the natural materials of their protective lanolin coating which can cause them to go brittle. Once cleaned, rinse the area well and dry thoroughly. To speed up the drying process a hairdryer can be used on a warm heat setting (never hot), this will also create air movement.
If full cleaning of your Brinkhaus bedding is required then we recommend professional laundering only. This should be avoided whenever possible however, as cleaning and laundering has a detrimental effect on luxury bedding and the effective life of your duvet is shortened every time these processes are carried out. General fluffing of the duvet daily and regular airing is all that is required to keep your duvet at its best under normal circumstances.
