Tips For Storing Heavy Beddings

Be it while sleeping, or watching TV, snuggling in your comforters during chilly winters gives a different level of joy. Thick, cosy and soft blankets give delightful warmth during the freezing winters. Quilts made of pure cotton are the best ones as they help trap the heat of your body and does not let you feel cold. As Summer approaches, the use of these comforters and blankets becomes less.  

When not in use, tuck these quilts in a safe and dry place. Cleaning and storing these large and heavy quilts becomes very difficult. 

One mistake, it could ruin your loving favourite soft quilt forever!

A handful of tips below will surely help you in storing your comforters the right way.

1. How To Wash? 

The first step is to wash your quilts properly. Due to continuous use, they start to give a foul smell. Failing to clean will make them stinky and will attract bugs.  Heavy comforts should be cleaned with cold water. Use a nice fragrant detergent and laundry sanitiser to disinfect them from all germs and cleanse them thoroughly. 

2. Laundry Conditioner.

Using a laundry conditioner will help in smoothening the texture of your comforters. They make them soft and give a nice fragrance to the comforters. Many companies offer different fragrant conditioners. In case of the absence of a laundry conditioner, one can use white vinegar. One cup of vinegar can remove the stench from the comforters. The plus point is that vinegar never leaves its smell on the clothes.

3. How To Dry? 

After the wash, drying these comforters is an important step. If you have a dryer, then you can dry them in it. But, if you don’t have, then to avoid the growth of any mould or mildew on the wet laundry, it is vital to let the comforters dry carefully. Dry them under the sunlight as it kills all the bacterias and cleanses the laundry. Make sure every spot of your quilt must be dry before storing them. 

4. Storing These Comforters.

After the quilts have dried well, they need to be folded nicely. Folding them right will take less space, and you can keep more blankets on one another. As heavy quilts are difficult to fold, one should meticulously fold them. Keep them in breathable bags that will not only protect them from dust but will also allow airflow.

Never keep these comforters on the ground. Later, keep them in a nice cool and dry place that will prevent the growth of mould and mildew. A closet or a wardrobe is the best place to store them. Also, make sure the wardrobe is clean before you place these bags. 

Stocking the comforters for long also gives them a pungent odour, especially during rainy days. Try using odour remover or fresher or Naphthalene Balls to eliminate these odours. 

5. Handy. 

If you have a habit of using comforters regularly, like while watching tv, keep them handy. Use comforter hangers that are strong enough to hold heavy comforters and hang them in the closet. 

But, if you use these comforters only during winters, it is better to store them in the closet, which you hardly use.
