How to store your winter duvet for the summer

As the weather starts to warm up, it's time to switch out your winter bedding for something lighter and cooler like a Rest Evercool Comforter. But what do you do with your winter duvet? Storing your duvet properly during the summer months can help to keep it in top condition for the next winter season. In this blog, we'll share some tips on how to store your winter duvet in the summer.

  1. Clean it first: Before storing your duvet, it's important to clean it thoroughly. This helps to remove any dirt, dust, or allergens that may have accumulated over the winter months. Follow the care instructions on the duvet to ensure that you're washing it properly.

  2. Air it out: After washing your duvet, hang it outside or in a well-ventilated area to air it out. This helps to remove any excess moisture and odors that may have built up during storage.

  3. Fold it properly: To prevent your duvet from becoming misshapen during storage, fold it properly. 

  4. Use a storage bag: To protect your duvet from dust and pests, store it in a breathable storage bag. Avoid using plastic bags that is not vacuum-sealed, as they can trap moisture and cause mold or mildew to form. A fabric storage bag or vacuum-sealed storage bag is a better option.

  5. Choose the right location: When storing your duvet, choose a cool, dry location that's away from direct sunlight. A closet or under-bed storage container is a good option. Avoid storing your duvet in a damp or humid environment, as this can cause the filling to mold or mildew.

  6. Check on it periodically: It's a good idea to check on your duvet periodically during storage. This helps to ensure that it's still in good condition and that no pests or moisture have found their way inside the storage bag.

Storing your winter duvet properly during the summer months can help to keep it in top condition for the next winter season. By cleaning it thoroughly, airing it out, folding it properly, using a storage bag, choosing the right location, and checking on it periodically, you can ensure that your duvet is ready to provide cozy warmth and comfort when the colder weather returns.
