Laundering bed linen, from the bed sheets to the pillowcases and all in between, is a cumbersome task. First you need to collect the linen, wash it, dry it and then put them all back in a nice and neat way. But making the bed is a simple task, especially with pillows and bed sheets. It's the task of stuffing your duvet into its cover, that is exhausting and rather frustrating. You start at one end and pile in the duvet, then it gets all lumpy, you struggle to straighten it out, you straighten one end out and then there are 3 other corners to do.. at some point in this endlessly futile exercise, you will grasp the duvet between your teeth and climb into the cover to stuff it. Then you climb out and realize you have to do the bed again, because your antics have messed up its pristine appearance. Avoid getting into a wrestling match with the duvet and its cover. Go through the following steps and you'll be surprised at how easy it is to put the duvet in its cover.
It's worth noting that it takes special measures beyond a simple run through the washer to kill off dust mites. Dust mites have been shown to be more effectively killed off if certain essential oils are used in the washing process such as pine, eucalyptus, or peppermint oil. These can kill a large majority of the dust mites in the duvet and will also leave a refreshing scent. Unfortunately just killing dust mites is note quite enough. Most allergies to dust mites are to their waste products and their bodies (dead or live) and so it might be effective to shake out or even beat your duvet with a broom as it's suspended from a line. After this you will need to redistribute the filling material so that it is evenly placed. If you start out with a dust mite proof duvet cover you will not have to take such extreme cleaning measures of your duvet, you can simply focus your cleaning on the duvet cover on a regular basis and still avoid allergies related to dust mites in a dirty duvet.
You've probably already used a duvet, but you still don't know what it is. It is a product that provides insulation just like a blanket would. The difference is that it is a bag, that is filled with eiderdown (generally known as down) feathers and completely eliminates the need to use any sheets, blankets, quilts, or comforters to cover oneself while sleeping. It is one of the softest coverings, and therefore, most comfortable to sleep in. It is also known as a duvet insert or duvet comforter.
Choose something that has a high thread count or TC. A high TC means softer duvet cover. A duvet cover set with a 300 TC is perfect. But if you still want something softer, you can still choose something with a higher TC.
