Heavy Duty Wash


Contrary to popular belief, most down comforters and feather pillows can be washed at a coin laundry. Be sure to read the care instructions and always use a mild detergent. When drying, put some wool dryer balls or clean tennis balls in the dryer to help fluff the down and keep it from clumping.

BLANKETS: To decide how often to wash extra blankets, you need to figure out how often they are actually used. If you have blankets at the end of your bed that are never unrolled and used, then washing them every few months should work well. However, if the blanket is used daily or nightly, you may want to put it on a weekly or every two week washing schedule.

COMFORTERS: If you have a cover, it will protect the interior comforter from most dirt and soiling. Unless the comforter has something spilled on it, you won't need to wash it more than once or twice a year. The cover, however, will need to be washed weekly. If you consistently use a top sheet, you might be able to stretch this to wash your comforter every 2-4 weeks. If you do not use a separate comforter cover, you'll need to wash the entire comforter every week and whenever spills or stains happen. Your home machine can't handle the size, we will launder your comforter here at Rudy's Laundromat where we have heavy duty sized machines.

MATTRESS COVERS: Using a mattress cover is a lifesaver in extending the life of your mattress. Mattress covers can help prevent mattress damage, prevent allergies, and keep your mattress clean and comfy. Mattress covers themselves will need to be removed and washed at least monthly.

BED SKIRTS, CANOPIES, AND CURTAINS: All those extra bedding options are usually for decoration and not function. Items like bed skirts, canopies, and curtains don't usually get dirty very often. If you are an allergy sufferer, you may want to wash these items every 2-3 months. For everyone else twice a year or yearly washings will usually be all that is needed unless spills or stains happen.
