Whether you have down-filled comforters, sleeping bags, winter jackets, pillows, or all of these, the right cleaning steps on how to wash down coats, bed linens and such will ensure they stay silky soft and freshly scented.
1. Check laundry symbols to be sure your down goods can be machine-washed. Check pillow and bedding seams for durability, and mend any shaky seams. For puffy coats, fasten all zippers and empty pockets.
2. Choose a normal wash and spin cycle (unless otherwise noted by the care label), and add a detergent like Dynamo Power Gel freshness of Downy Passion.
3. Submerge items when washer is half full and balance the load by adding a few like-colored towels. Stop the washer occasionally to press air from items.
4. Tumble dry on low. (Always check the laundry symbols for drying instructions before you start, to be sure that your fabrics can be machine dried and at what temperature.)
