Caring for Your Down Product

Clean White Duvet with Goose Down

Duvet Care

  • Shake everyday; this gets the dust out and fills it with air
  • Hang out to air occasionally

Duvet Washing

  • Geese get wet! We do not recommend dry cleaning
  • Wash every 18-24 months (unless there is a spill)
  • Go to laundromat; use front loading drum washer (no agitator)
  • Use warm water and mild soap
  • Dry in the dryer (on medium to high heat) for 1-2 hours

Pillow Care

  • Fluff and shake your pillow on a daily basis
  • Use pillow protectors to extend their life

Pillow Washing

  • Wash at least 2 pillows to balance the cycle when possible
  • Use warm water & gentle soaps without additives
  • Consider an extra rinse cycle to ensure the soap is gone
  • Fabric softener is not recommended because it can coat the down & feathers reducing their fluff
  • Be patient while drying, it can take multiple cycles to get the pillow completely dry
  • Hand fluff between cycles to gauge dryness, it is better to err on the side of more drying time than less, as this prevents mold
  • Clumping or odor are signs your pillow is not completely dry yet. The pillows may still be damp inside even though they feel dry to the touch
