How often to wash a comforter

This depends on how good you are on the use (and washing machine) sheets and duvet cover. Making proper use of a duvet cover and sheets can make the difference between the need to wash your comforter once a week, compared to need to wash twice a year.

  • If you sleep with just a duvet cover (not flat sheets or other blankets), and they are good about washing the duvet cover, once a week, then you should wash your comforter once a month.
  • If you sleep with just a duvet cover (no flat sheets or other blankets), but you are not good about washing the duvet cover, once a week, then you should wash your comforter twice a month.
  • If you sleep with a duvet cover and flat sheets, and they are good on weekly wash them, then you should wash your comforter quarterly (four times a year).
  • If sleeping with a duvet cover and flat sheets, but not good about weekly wash them, then you should wash your down comforter once a month.
  • If you sleep with a duvet cover, flat sheets and blankets, and you are good on weekly wash them, then you should wash your comforter twice a year.
