Are you supposed to wash comforters? Your quilt, comforter, or duvet can harbor allergens such as dust mites that ruin that good night’s sleep, so it’s important to know how to wash a comforter the right way. Washing comforters two to three times per year will keep your bed fresh and clean (and your allergies at bay).
Should you wash a comforter in a washing machine? Load your comforter into the washing machine, along with soap or detergent, and run it through a delicate cycle with cold or warm water. Sukalac said you should wash it a second time on a quick cycle, with no soap, to rinse any detergent residue from the down inside.
How often should you wash your blankets on your bed? If you have blankets at the end of your bed that are seldom unrolled and used, then washing them every few months should work well. However, if a blanket is used daily or nightly, you may want to put it on a weekly or biweekly washing schedule.
