How to clean and care for your scooms duvet

You can wash scooms goose down and feather duvets in the washing machine. Just follow the instructions on the care label. We recommend that you wash your scooms duvet every 6 to 12 months.

To keep your scooms duvet in tip top condition:

  1. Give your duvet a good shake each morning.
  2. Pull back your duvet every day to allow it to breath and any moisture to evaporate.
  3. Machine wash at 40° every 6-12 months - you may need to take your duvet to the laundrette unless you have a large drum capacity machine.
  4. Use non-bio (enzyme free) detergent - about a third of the usual amount.
  5. Dry thoroughly and tumble dry if necessary - make sure your duvet filling is completely dry before you place it in your duvet cover.
To get the best insulation from your scooms duvet:
Down insulates so well because it traps air. So the down needs to be light and airy to insulate most effectively:
  1. Check your duvet cover isn't too tight as it will constrict the downs natural loft. If your duvet is rather squashed into the cover, then you won't be getting the maximum insulation that the duvet can provide.
  2. Use bed linen that is made of a natural material, like 100% cotton, so that the down can breathe, (which synthetic materials don't allow).
  3. Give your duvet a really good shake every night or morning to keep the down  as fluffy and airy as possible.
