Most types of duvets can be dried in your own tumble dryer at home, providing they fit inside the machine. In fact, many duvet manufacturers recommend tumble drying synthetic duvets as this makes sure they are completely dry before you use them again.
Here are a couple of tips that help when drying your duvet in a tumble dryer:
- Use tennis balls placed inside socks or a pillow case inside the drum to help prevent clumping as the duvet dries.
- Always dry duvets on a low heat
- Take the duvet out of the machine and shake several times during the drying cycle.
Feather and down duvets may not always be suitable for drying in tumble dryers at home and may require professional dry cleaning – it’s always a good idea to check the label first. However if you do dry a feather duvet in your home tumble dryer machine, it’s a good idea to remove and shake the duvet regularly during the drying process as feather duvets are much more prone to clumping.
