Spring Cleaning Comforters, Blankets and Quilts

spring cleaning

Spring is not too far around the corner now, which means soon homeowners will be engaged in their annual spring cleaning. It is that time of year to clean and maintain all your bedding, which typically includes comforters, blankets, quilts and the likes. With that said, the team here at Jimmy’s Cleaners and Alterations wants to remind all our valued clients that not all washing machines and clothes dryers are designed to handle comforters, blankets and quilts made of heavy cotton or other materials. With this thought in mind, our valued clients can rely upon our team of professionals to handle it all.

FACTS ABOUT PROPER CARE AND MAINTENANCE OF BEDDING

When attempting to clean your bedding at home, often times a color loss or even a change in material finish can occur. Color loss is more than obvious when the blanket or comforter no longer matches those accessory pieces that were not cleaned at the same time, such as a pillow sham. To keep this from happening relying upon a professional cleaner to give proper care to your bedding items is more times than not the best way to go.

It can be somewhat difficult to know and understand how often a comforter, quilt or blanket should be washed since doing so too often can result in overworking the material, fabric and its specific interior stuffing. When this occurs, your precious bedding can become permanently damaged.

QUILTS, COMFORTERS AND BLANKETS VARY

There are many types and styles of blankets, quilts and comforters all of which are composed of a variety of different materials. Some of the softest and most comfortable bedding materials are made with down feathers. These bedding items are incredibly delicate and require specialized washing techniques. Those blankets or quilts made of cotton or other material stuffing require a range of other washing and drying techniques.

Bedding materials all come with varied care and washing labels. It is important you give focus to these labels and follow their specific instructions in order to properly and safely care for these bedding items. Many of the labels provide specific dry-cleaning instructions as well. Following specific label instructions will ensure the overall integrity and health of your bedding items. If washing your comforters at home, be sure to always use a mild detergent on a delicate cycle and perhaps even allow for an extra rinse cycle.
